Allergy research and clinical care was on the agenda at Parliament House today.

The Honourable Ged Kearney MP, Federal Assistant Minister for Health and Aged Care, met National Allergy Centre of Excellence (NACE) and National Allergy Council (NAC) leaders to discuss our work to improve the lives of five million Australians living with allergic disease.

The productive discussion focused on our progress across multiple projects since Hon Kearney officially launched the NACE and NAC in August 2022. The collaboration is designed to accelerate allergy research and access to clinical care across Australia.
