Pediatric Allergy & Immunology


Children’s immune systems help their bodies fight diseases. But sometimes the immune system responds too much or too little to perceived threats – causing allergies or serious medical conditions. Improve your child’s well-being by seeking care at UNM Health System, home to New Mexico’s only pediatric immunologist.
