[Sponsored] A Closer Look at Systemic Mastocytosis (Webinar)

Systemic mastocytosis (SM) affects nearly 32,000 people in the United States, including some people with food allergies. People with SM have too many abnormal mast cells that cause a wide range of symptoms, including rashes, shortness of breath, and/or anaphylaxis. SM symptoms can look like asthma and allergy symptoms.
Blueprint Medicines is offering an informational program about SM. The next session is on Dec. 6, at 7 p.m. ET. During the virtual program, you’ll hear from a doctor and a patient who will share their experience managing SM.
