As science continues to discover new connections between a healthy gut microbiome and overall health, it becomes increasingly important to learn more about these connections.
One of the simplest ways to grow your understanding is through the Microba Insights Program. This program is designed for health care professionals and the Microba Insights Course provides a high-level overview of the gut microbiome. It also provides the opportunity to learn, in-depth, about topics of interest to you, including the gut microbiome’s connections to inflammatory disease (IBD and IBS), metabolic disease, cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, and mental health.
