Helmholtz Zentrum München, is setting up and evaluating an allergy information service. This service is part of a research project and is aimed at patients, their families and the interested public. The contents of a former allergy portal of the former Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection are taken into account.
The Allergy Information Service offers up-to-date, scientifically validated information from all areas of allergy research and medicine in an easy-to-understand format via the Internet. Furthermore, the Allergy Information Service Munich hosts allergy education days where physicians and allergy researchers give presentations on the current state of research. During these allergy education days, patients and family members have the opportunity to interact directly with the researchers and to address their individual questions to them.
Helmholtz Zentrum München has many years of experience in communicating health topics through other information services (Lung Information Service, Diabetes Information Service, FLUGS Information Service Environment and Health, Environmental Consulting Bavaria, etc. ) These serve as an important basis for the Allergy Information Service.
