The author of the maps that can be found at the links below is V. Dimov, M.D., Fellow, Creighton University Division of Allergy & Immunology. They were reviewed by S. Randhawa, M.D., Fellow, LSU (Shreveport) Department of Allergy & Immunology. Endorsed by the AAAAI and the ACAAI.

This article focuses only on the mind maps, but there is extensive reference information included on the web pages with the mind maps.

In making use of these maps, you should evaluate the sources and decide whether you can rely on their accuracy and completeness. Be aware that WikIT does not endorse or validate the maps and our editors are not qualified to do so.

This article is one in a series relating to the main one on the topic: Medical profession’s use of mind mapping
