Microbiome Symposium: An Evaluation of Gut Health (Washington, DC)

Oct 28, 2017


The Microbiome Symposium is a full-day event for clinicians that want to investigate the factors that impact the gastrointestinal microbiome and discover clinical tools to improve their patients' health and well-being.

About Event
Join integrative functional medicine specialist, Dr. Todd LePine, and a panel of Genova Diagnostics' speakers as they use clinical case studies to focus on a variety of GI conditions including dysbiosis, digestion, absorption, and leaky gut. 

At the end of the symposium, you will understand the complex ecosystem that comprises the gut microbiome and will leave knowing how to apply that understanding to your patients and in clinical practice. 
 
Why Should You Attend?
  • Learn how the gut bacteria impacts disease and how to identify possible gut alterations
  • Explore the importance of adequate digestion and absorption and the impact on GI health
  • Gain clinical tools to help better treat and manage your patient's GI conditions
  • Expand your knowledge of specialty testing and learn to incorporate it into your practice

TOPICS COVERED

  • The Microbiome: Dysbiosis, Diversity and Abundance
  • The Microbiome and Disease
  • Impaired Digestion and Absorption on Health and GI Health
  • Leaky Gut and Its Impact on Health: Inflammation and IgG Reactions
  • GI Effects Profile Overview
