Allergies and asthma, inflammatory conditions that are closely linked, will be the focus of a free seminar the Community Memorial Health System is holding on Tuesday, Nov. 29.

Prashant Verma, a Ventura internist who is board-certified in Allergy and Immunology, will lead the seminar that will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the eighth-floor Nichols Auditorium at Community Memorial Hospital, located at 147 Brent St. in Ventura.

Dr. Verma will provide a thorough overview of allergies and asthma, which affects 22 million Americans, causes 500,000 hospitalizations each year and has a significant impact on quality of life and the economy through lost productivity in the workplace.
