First WAO Public & Patient Forum Held in Hyderabad, India, 9 December 2012
The First WAO Public & Patient Forum and a Children's Painting Competition, held on 9 December 2012 at the Apollo Hospital-Jubiliee Hills in Hyderabad, India, was a huge success! Patient organizations participated in networking and strategizing on strengthening the patient voice in advocacy. More than 90 children participated in a painting competition, drawing their concepts of "What do allergies look like?" Volunteer physicians from around the world also provided spirometry testing to those attending the Forum.
WAO sincerely thanks the patient organizations and physicians who contributed to this landmark event. We would also like to express our gratitude and appreciation to the staff and administration at Apollo Hospital! Without your efforts, this day would not have happened.
