“We’re excited to have United Allergy Services join the AAFP Foundation as our newest corporate partner,” said Craig Doane, executive director of the AAFP Foundation. “Contributions to the Corporate Partner Program help the Foundation continue its good work, and we also learn about companies, such as UAS, and the services they offer to family physicians.” As the only medical specialty to follow a patient’s health over a lifetime, family physicians are uniquely qualified to identify and treat the millions of Americans who suffer from airborne allergies.
