Back to Basics: Understanding Terms and Methods in the Gut Microbiome Space
Virtual, Event
March 16, 2022
11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Microbiome or microbiota? Healthy microbiome or dysbiosis? Whole genome or shotgun sequencing? Gut microbiome science continues to evolve at a rapid speed – challenging the non-expert to keep pace! As nutrition and other healthcare practitioners across many specialties are, and will continue to be, required to respond to questions about gut microbiome, nutrition, and health it is of value to step back and ensure a foundational understanding.

This webinar is designed for the non-expert that seeks to improve the understanding of gut microbiome science – with a focus on common terms and continually evolving methods. Participation will support the ability of practitioners to evaluate gut microbiome research and the degree to which it supports dietary recommendations and guidance – now and in the future.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is an accredited CPE provider with the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR). CDR Credentialed Practitioners will receive 1.0 CPEU for attendance at the live webinar.
