Webinar - The Gut Microbiome and Human Health: How Do We Promote Gut Health?

The research is getting clearer every day that our current Standard American Diet (SAD) contributes to gut dysbiosis and increases risk for chronic diseases and auto‐immune diseases. Given the exponential growth in the published research on this topic, it is nearly impossible to keep up with the research, especially for health educators and public health professionals. This webinar will provide content and discussion on the
following topics:

*A basic introduction to the overall topic of the gut microbiome
*Review basic findings so far on human health and disease
*Focus on how we can apply this knowledge in public health settings with
non‐clinical populations through emphasizing food and dietary change

Speaker:  Diane Depken, Ed.D (University of Northern Iowa)
