Food Allergy Center Opens

Contributions of $2.35 million from The Robert H. Dedman Jr. Family Foundation, The Robert and Nancy Dedman Foundation, and Mrs. Robert H. Dedman, Sr. enabled the opening of a new Food Allergy Center in 2010.  Under the direction of J. Andrew (Drew) Bird, M.D., Dedman Family Scholar in Clinical Care, the Food Allergy Center treats a broad range of allergic diseases in both inpatient and outpatient settings and will be conducting research that is instrumental in developing treatments and therapies.

At the Crystal Charity Ball High-Risk Asthma Clinic, opened at Children’s Medical Center in Spring 2011, children with moderate-to-severe asthma are followed, and a comprehensive management approach is offered.
