Understanding and Treating Environmental Allergies

Leesburg, VA – (April 23, 2013) – As part of its free “Ask the Expert” lecture series, Inova Loudoun Hospital will host a “Understanding and Treating Environmental Allergies” on Thursday, April 25 at 6 p.m.

You do not have to suffer with environmental allergies any longer. An allergist can help you diagnose the cause of your symptoms with specific testing, and treat the allergies with environmental changes, medications and desensitization. Dr. Saba Sharif, an Allergy/Asthma/Sinus specialist, will help you understand and manage your allergies. She states, “Allergies don’t have to interfere with your day to day activities. Customized treatment can help you to identify your triggers, control symptoms and even potentially cure your allergies.”

The lecture will be at Inova Loudoun Hospital, 44045 Riverside Parkway, Leesburg, in Conference Rooms A and B. Participation is free, but registration is requested.  Register online at inova.org/asktheexpert or call 855-MY-INOVA (694-6682).
