Exercising the right choices to promote gut microbiota health

Do highly conditioned athletes like soccer's Ronaldo or basketball's LeBron have an advantage over the rest when it comes to their gut microbiota's health?

Understanding the role of exercise in maintaining gut health will be in play at the 8th annual Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit (GMFH) on March 23 and 24, 2019, in Miami.

Purna Kashyap, MBBS, Mayo Clinic, will moderate a session on Promoting Microbiota Health Through Diet and Exercise that will examine the impact of dietary fiber, fermented foods and exercise on gut health. 

Special rates with the host hotel, the InterContinental Miami, 305-577-1000, expire on March 1. Register today as standard rates expire March 12, 2019. Standard registration can save registrants up to $200. After March 12, only on-site registration is available. 

Organized by AGA and the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility (ESNM), the GMFH World Summit is the preeminent meeting on gut microbiota for health care professionals, dietitians and clinical researchers. This year’s program will present the latest evidence on the interaction between diet, nutrition and the gut microbiome. The summit has been approved for up to 10.75 CME credits.

As an attendee, you will leave with a deep understanding of how diet and exercise can change your patients’ microbiota; learn about the most recent research that can help you improve care; understand the new ways to discuss microbiota care with your patients; and have opportunities to network with industry thought leaders.
