Conferences On-Line Allergy (COLA)

Conferences On-Line Allergy (COLA) consists of the bi-weekly presentations at the Children's Mercy Hospitals & Clinics Section of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology. The lectures are very comprehensive and cover most of the spectrum of allergy and immunology. The project could be the video analog of the textbook Middleton's Allergy: Principles and Practice one day.

It is a good idea to download all video files (if allowed by the copyright holder) since many of the webmasters remove them after a certain period of the time. The download cane be done manually or throughiTunes by choosing the "Get all" option from the podcast menu.
