Vanderbilt Medical Center, Nashville, Tennessee

My name is David Hagaman. I'm the Medical Director of the Vanderbilt Asthma, Sinus and Allergy Program.

Here at Vanderbilt, we have a specific site that's dedicated to the evaluation, diagnosis and management of all airway diseases. And so onsite we have allergists, pulmonologists and ENTs that look at the total airway and deal with disease states such as sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, asthma and non-allergic rhinitis.

We also have a clinical research program that is dedicated to doing clinical studies to see if we can help these disorders. And over the years, we've done a number of studies that have been very helpful in introducing new pharmaceutical treatments for the airway diseases.

In addition, Vanderbilt has a very large respiratory division that has been on the cutting edge of treatment of airway diseases for many years. And they specialize in treatment of vascular diseases, of interstitial lung diseases, and of asthma and COPD.
