Everyone should have access to trusted, credible information.
Two things are important to us: making products that make a difference in people’s lives, and providing great education. But as a consumer, we know it can be difficult to get the health information you want, and to know which sources you can trust.
That’s why we have partnered with the University of Toronto’s Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy to bring you Town Hall Medicine, a new digital destination for credible health information.
More from our Founder & CEO, Stewart Brown:
The Microbiome Summit brings 21 world-renowned researchers from institutions such as Harvard, UCLA, University of Toronto and University of Western Australia to speak about the microbiome and its important impacts on our health.
Why the microbiome?
In the last five years, more discoveries have been made about the microbiome than ever before – and the more we learn, the more interested we become.
We are coming to the realization that we are just as much microbe as we are human, and are understanding the impact that these microbes have on our health.
We believe that we are on the verge of a massive paradigm shift that will change the understanding of human health and the practice of medicine.
He are some things that you’ll learn at the The Microbiome Summit:
- How the microbiome influences our immune system and mental health
- How the first 100 days of life are critical to a child’s microbiome – and how these 100 days can impact whether a child develops asthma or allergies
- How the microbiome and its metabolites could be a better predictor of type II diabetes than genetics
Our hope is that the Town Hall Medicine Microbiome Summit will give you the information you need to live a healthier life.
