Event Description
Event hosted by Plant Powered Metro New York. Entry by donation.


Co-sponsored with Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan.

Trillions of microorganisms live in our gut - collectively called the "microbiome" and a whole world unto themselves. A burgeoning field of research, the science of the microbiome is beginning to teach us how critical it is for our day-to-day health and well-being to have a wide diversity of microbes inhabiting our gastrointestinal tracts. But how can we achieve such diversity in a sterilized society? Dr. Yaghoobzadeh will explain what the latest science tells us to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and how nutrition modulates health through the microbiome.

Hooman Yaghoobzadeh, M.D., FACC, Clinical Associate Professor, Cardiologist, Weill Cornell Medicine, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

Pay-what-you-wish donation encouraged.
