Diet Quality, the Gut Microbiome, and Health Disparities

May 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT


About This Webinar

Does dietary intake shift microbial ecology and function toward the formation of harmful microbial metabolites that contribute to cancer risk?  Recent research has discovered that dietary intake and microbes may be associated with health disparities.  Attend this webinar to learn how we can translate research into actionable interventions and future directions to make these interventions accessible to the patients we serve.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  1. Evaluate evidence and identify research gaps in relationship of microbial ecology and function with cancer risk.
  2. Consider the association of diet and microbes with health disparities.
  3. Determine how research can be translated into action steps to provide individuals access to interventions.
