Whitney Morgan Block, MSN, CPNP, FNP-BC

Before founding the National Allergy Center, Whitney joined the team at the Stanford University’s Sean N. Parker Center for Asthma and Allergy Research as the lead nurse practitioner in 2013, where multi-allergen food desensitization with and without omalizumab (Xolair) was pioneered.  She was the lead clinician on the first phase 2 research trials studying Xolair in conjunction with oral immunotherapy for multiple allergens simultaneously. In this role, Whitney worked with patients and colleagues to develop and optimize protocols for multi-food oral immunotherapy and co-authored trial results in addition to many other research publications.  In January 2016, she established the food allergy treatment program at the Asthma and Allergy Medical Group of the Bay Area in Walnut Creek, CA. The increasing prevalence of food allergies and patient interest made Whitney realize the enormous unmet need for this therapy worldwide. In pursuing her passion to help children overcome food allergies and create more happy childhoods, Whitney felt compelled to open the National Allergy Center and began treating patients with state of the art food allergy therapies. Whitney is expanding the National Allergy Center to offer this life changing therapy across the country.

President and CEO, Co-Founder

Whitney has co-authored numerous research publications including Guidelines for Diagnosing Food Allergy (Pediatric Clinics of North  America, December 2015), Anti-IgE treatment with oral immunotherapy in multifood allergic participants: a double-blind, randomised, controlled trial (Lancet Gastroenterology and Hepatology, December 2017), Feasibility of sustained response  through long-term dosing in food allergy immunotherapy (Allergy, Asthma and Clinical Immunology, December 2017), and many others.  


Whitney has dual board certifications as a pediatric and family nurse practitioner and is experienced treating patients of all ages.  She received a Masters in Nursing from Vanderbilt University and a Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Johns Hopkins University. Before treating patients with food allergies she worked with the Centers for Disease Control on a nationwide research tour focused on pediatric health and nutrition.

The National Allergy Center is not affiliated with Stanford University or the Asthma and Allergy Medical Group of the Bay Area.

Dr. Neeno is a board-certified allergist/immunologist specializing in pediatrics.  Practicing since 1996, she has witnessed dramatic improvements in our understanding of food - from the introduction of foods to infants through the life-changing treatment of patients with food allergies.   Before moving to California, she was a practicing allergist in Anchorage, AK and has treated patients with food allergy oral immunotherapy since 2017.  At National Allergy Center, Dr. Neeno enjoys practicing in a clinic entirely focused on food allergies and finds it gratifying to see fear melt away in her patients who are eating foods they thought they would never be able to eat. 

Dr. Neeno completed her allergy and immunology training at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.  She graduated from the Medical College of Wisconsin and trained in pediatrics at Kessler Medical Center in Biloxi, MS.  While on active duty in the United States Air Force, she was an allergist at the Air Force training center for allergy and immunology - Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio Texas.
