To raise recognition and expand knowledge in this fast moving field, the Gut Microbiota for Health Summit aims at translating the most recent advances to the medical community. World-leading experts meet annualy to discuss the latest advances in gut microbiota research and its impact on health.
The eighth annual Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit will be held in Miami in March 23 & 24, 2019. The summit is sponsored by the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) and the European Society for Neurogastroenterology & Motility (ESNM), and is endorsed by the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society (ANMS) and the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN).
The exhiting programme for 2019 will focus on the interplay between what we eat and the microbes that live on and in us. The outstanding international faculty led by keynote speaker Jack Gilbert, will kick off the meeting with a talk on our current understanding of the human microbiome. We have plenary sessions and workshops dedicated to various aspects of diet, nutrition and their impact on human health and disease.
Patients and the public are more curious about the gut microbiota than ever before, and the science is moving at a fast pace. Our program is designed to update health care professionals on the latest research and how lessons learned from the laboratory may translate to patient care. We hope that health care professionals across all disciplines — physicians, dietitians, nutritionists, advanced practice providers and researchers — will join us for an interdisciplinary discussion on the gut microbiota.
We look forward to welcoming you to the summit in Miami. In the meantime, join us on the Gut Microbiota for Health platform and follow us on Twitter: @GMFHx.
