A PROFESSOR who specialises in allergies is coming to St Albans next week to talk to local asthmatics.
Professor Stephen Durham, Head of Allergy and Clinical Immunology at Imperial College London, will be the guest speaker at the asthma and allergy awareness open evening on Tuesday (16) at Nicholas Breakspear Secondary School.
Professor Durham, who is also a professor of allergy and respiratory medicine at Royal Brompton hospital in London, will be present for the duration of the evening for two hours from 7pm.
The event has been organised by the Alex Curtis Memorial Trust, which was set up in 2007 following the death of ex-Nicholas Breakspear student Alex Curtis, who died of an acute asthmatic attack when he was just 17 years old.

Everyone is welcome to attend the event on Tuesday night at the Colney Heath Lane school, which will end at 9pm.
