Metabolic Health Symposium: Catalyzing Science to Action for Transformation and Resilience Across the Lifespan
June 9 - June 11
This 3-day in person and virtual medical education symposium will explore and apply the science of metabolic health and nutrition over the lifespan around the three pillars of metabolic health:
Day 1: Protect the Liver
Day 2: Feed the Gut
Day 3: Support the Brain
Now, more than ever, we must realize the link between diet, lifestyle, and the majority of chronic diseases that plague modern society. The prevalence of obesity and metabolic disease in the form of prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), lipid disorders, and more, are serious problems that continues to grow at an alarming rate. From pediatrics to geriatrics, there is no systems-wide approach. It is time to change and challenge the status quo. Here are 5 of the many great reasons to attend this program:
- Presentations and breakout sessions with 32 internationally-recognized metabolic health experts
- 30 hours of accredited, educational content available to registrants to view for 60 days post event
- Cooking demos each day that put words into action for easy, healthy lifestyle changes
- In person and virtual registrations options (or register for in person to do a combination of both)
- Networking opportunities with colleagues and respected leaders to turn metabolic health science into action in your communities
This course is designed for physicians and all allied health professionals who care for patients in the following specialties: family medicine, internal and pediatric medicine, and their sub-specialties including cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, gerontology, neurology, obesity medicine/bariatric medicine, and more. While the course content is designed for health care professionals, we invite members of our community advocating for health care and patients as well as general public attendees to join our live, virtual broadcast as well.
Implementing effective nutrition intervention in metabolic disease requires unlearning previously accepted truths, taking action to prevent the development of metabolic syndrome, and managing and reversing those that are already established. It makes little sense to continue promoting the status quo. We need to reevaluate the science, the history, and re-educate ourselves and our patients on how to reverse this pandemic of diet and lifestyle driven diseases. That is the goal this symposium aims to achieve.
