What is the RSL Challenge?

The RSL Challenge is a friendly fundraising competition between the regional, state and local societies where the region that donates the most to the AAAAI Foundation in 2019 will receive free certification for a 2020 CME course.

Why join the RSL Challenge?

  • Because your region can win free CME certification - that's a $2,500 value!
  • To support allergy and asthma research that leads to improved patient care.
  • To show off your regional pride - the winning region will be highlighted at the upcoming 2020 AAAAI Annual Meeting and on the Foundation's website.

Challenge Outline

Every gift made in 2019 to the AAAAI Foundation can count toward the RSL Challenge. Gifts must be designated to a specific region at the time of donation.

The RSL Board of Governors will review the donation tallies at the end of the year. The winning region’s Governor will choose the specific society to earn the CME certification in March of 2020.
