Yakult Study Day 2019

Latest Insights into the Gut Microbiota & Health: From Research to Practice

The gut microbiota continues to grow in popularity, both within the scientific community and among the general public.  The aim of this one-day study day is to provide healthcare professionals with an update on the latest research on the gut microbiota, and its involvement in our health.

In particular, the day will focus on the development and roles of the gut microbiota, approaches to modulating the gut microbiota -for specific conditions, and get insights into practical approaches and the challenges faced when implementing the research at population level.

The day will begin with an optional satellite symposium ‘An introduction to the main principles of the gut microbiota’, where fundamental questions including; what is the gut microbiota, what does it do, and what affects it will be answered.  The satellite symposium is designed to provide those who feel they don’t have a sufficient understanding of the gut microbiota with some background information ahead of the rest of the presentations.

The educational content of this Study Day is enorsed for continuing professional development (CPD) by the British Dietetic Association (BDA), Association for Nutrition (AfN) and the British Association for Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine (BANT).
