    Associate Professor of Pediatrics

    Edwin Kim, MD, MS is an associate professor of pediatrics at the University of North Carolina (UNC) School of Medicine and chief of the division of pediatric allergy and immunology. He is director of the UNC Food Allergy Initiative research group, which focuses on multiple aspects of food immunotherapy including safety and tolerability of immunotherapy, varying levels of clinical desensitization, and immune mechanisms involved in successful treatment. Dr. Kim is also interested in research that focuses on the development of novel therapeutics for food allergy. As director, his goal is to recruit and train the next generation of leaders in allergy and immunology through strong clinical training and productive research opportunities.

IgE-targeted Therapies and the Future Management of Food Allergies

Jointly provided by Partners for Advancing Clinical Education (PACE) and PlatformQ Health Education, LLC, in collaboration with the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE).


This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from Genentech, a member of the Roche Group.


This activity was released on February 29, 2024 and is valid until March 1, 2025. Requests for credit must be made no later than March 1, 2025.


The primary target audience for this activity are Allergy/Immunology, Pediatrics (MD/DO/NP/PA). The secondary target audience are Primary Care providers (MD/DO/NP/PA).


The standard of care for people with food allergies continues to be strict allergen avoidance of offending foods and reactive management of symptoms with emergency medications. However, total allergen avoidance is challenging. There is a critical need for new approaches that improve outcomes for patients with food allergies. Immunoglobulin E (IgE) plays a critical role in the pathophysiology of food allergies and anti-IgE monoclonal antibodies are promising emerging therapeutic agents.

Join an expert panel of an allergist/immunologist and a primary care physician to discuss the diagnostic process for food allergies, the risks and benefits of current management options for patients and their caregivers, and the role of biologics for patients with and without comorbidities.


After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
  • Clarify recommendations for the diagnosis and management of food allergies
  • Recognize the limitations and challenges faced by patients relying on allergen avoidance or using immunotherapy to manage food allergies
  • Summarize current evidence on the efficacy, safety, and place in therapy of emerging biologics that target the underlying IgE-driven pathophysiology of food allergies and common associated comorbidities
  • Discuss the place in care of agents targeting IgE and the role of shared decision-making in the management of people with food allergies


JointlyAccreditedProvider Logo In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Partners for Advancing Clinical Education (PACE) and PlatformQ Health Education, LLC. PACE is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.


PACE designates this enduring material for a maximum of 0.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.


This activity should take approximately 45 minutes to complete.


In order to receive credit for this activity, the participant must (1) read the target audience, learning objectives, and disclosure statements, (2) complete the educational activity online, and (3) complete the post-test and activity evaluation.
