Cafe Scientifique
Presented by the Institute for Healthy Living and Chronic Disease Prevention and
Interior Health

Gut health is fast becoming one of the most important factors in healthy aging, and could stave off chronic diseases such as cancer, Type 2 diabetes, and chronic inflammatory bowel disease. Gut health has even been linked to mental health and neurological conditions like schizophrenia and dementia. Hear about the latest research on the ways the millions of microbes that live in the digestive tract affect our body and our mind, and how a healthy lifestyle can sustain gut health and prevent chronic disease. This panel will feature researchers who are leading breakthroughs in this area of science.

Please join us for refreshments and a discussion about the latest research to improve gut health.
