How will this topic benefit NE Members? The webinar is intended for healthcare professionals, providing up-to-date information on the functional role of the gut microbiome in metabolic health.   It explores the possibility of improving health by the intake of specific nutrients intended to modulate the microbiome for improved function.

Health and weight management recommendations can involve life style changes that are often difficult to achieve.  Dietary choices have direct and indirect influences on health via the role of the microbiome.  The story of the relevance of the health of the gut microbiome to our relationship with food can be a new motivation.  Scientific evidence is mounting that connects the means of achieving a healthy microbiome to important health measures of the individual.  The presentation shares with professionals a novel science-based approach to help with weight management, blood sugar levels, occasional diarrhea, and occasional GI disturbances when taking metformin.  

This information should be immediately relevant to practices today.

Speaker:  The presentation was prepared by Dr. Mark Heiman, a friend and colleague of Gertrude Pfost.  Gertrude is a veteran of the biomedical research industry, has almost three decades of experience in marketing of groundbreaking scientific products at world-leading companies. After earning a master’s degree in biochemistry from Louisiana State University, she joined Beckman Instruments, now part of Danaher Corp., as product marketing manager for some of the company’s premier product lines, including its instruments for advanced biomolecular research. Pfost served as director of instrument marketing for Oxford GlycoSciences, a United Kingdom-based leader in biopharmaceutical research and development. She later worked in scientific product sales with VWR International, one of the world’s biggest distributors of research laboratory products. Pfost joined MicroBiome Therapeutics in 2016 as director of business development, overseeing product marketing strategy for BiomeBliss. She works with the company’s marketing team and partners to communicate the science and benefits of prebiotics to healthcare professionals and consumers.
