Hundreds of clinicians and researchers will attend the Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit (GMFH) from April 10-12, 2019 in Miami to learn about the latest advances in understanding the gut microbiome and its role in human health and disease. But what makes the 2019 summit different than other major conferences on the gut microbiome? 

Gail Hecht, MD, MS, AGAF, chair of the AGA Center for Gut Microbiome Research and Education Scientific Advisory Board, in a newly released video by AGA, noted that attending gastroenterologists specializing in the gut microbiota and gut microbiome will find great value in the knowledge to be shared. With new research unveiled on the impact of nutrition, diet and exercise in maintaining a healthy gut microbiome, the summit will emphasize how GIs can leverage current insights to empower patients to be proactive in maintaining or improving their own care.

Registration is underway and early bird rates are in effect until Jan. 15, 2019.

Organized by AGA and the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility (ESNM), the GMFH World Summit will host plenaries on:

    • Diet microbiota interactions in human health and disease.
    • Promoting microbiota health through diet and exercise.
    • Metabolites and nutrition.
    • Probiotics in human health and disease.

“The [GMFH] is particularly unique because the focus is on translating the basic science information … into useful information for health care providers,” said Dr. Hecht. Clinicians and researchers valuing the practical knowledge the summit will provide to help them in their practices and work programs can learn more at 2019 Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit.

Register today to secure your early bird rates by Jan. 15.
