Keynote Address Info

friday, october 14th
by Embriette Hyde, PhD -
 
Program Manager of The American Gut Project 
and Project Scientist for Knight Lab 
at the University of California San Diego

Join our keynote speaker Dr. Embriette Hyde for her compelling presentation
"Redefining Human: Living and Eating in a Microbiome World".

She'll separate the hope from the hype surrounding the scientific world's biggest research initiative today: understanding the importance of healthy bacterial ecosystems that impact everyday life.  From where you live to what you eat, from who you mate with and whether you have a dog -- all of these factors affect your bacteria and your health, most especially your gut health.  Whether you're a health provider or patient tending to digestive issues and inflammation, or if you just want to preserve the good health you have, Dr. Hyde brings the alien world of human bacteria into a realm that's both freaky and fun. 

Friday, October 14th, 2016
Doors & Registration Opens at 6:30pm - followed by a Q&A session with Dr. Hyde
