About the webinar:
The gut health craze has exploded and Google searches for ‘gut health’ have tripled in the last few years. Unlike other trends, this one is backed by science and making its way into healthcare guidelines. Is this area truly the next major revolution or is it, in part, a case of marketing enthusiasm outpacing the scientific evidence?
Leading gut health specialist dietitian Dr Megan Rossi (PhD, RD, APD), research fellow and author of Love Your Gut, will share the latest research on the gut microbiome and translate the current body of evidence to empower you to take an evidence-based approach to optimising the health of the gut in your dietetic practice.
About the speaker:
Dr Megan Rossi, founder of The Gut Health Doctor, is considered one of the most influential gut health specialists internationally. A Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist for the last decade with an award-winning PhD in gut health, which was recognised for its contribution to science, receiving the Dean’s Award for outstanding research.
Her first book, Love Your Gut, will be released in March 2021 in the US and Canada, having immediately become an Amazon and The Sunday Times bestseller in the UK. As a leading Research Fellow at King’s College London, Megan is currently investigating nutrition-based therapies in gut health, including prebiotics and probiotics, dietary fibres, plant-based diversity, the low-FODMAP diet and food additives. Megan also set up The Gut Health Clinic in London, where she leads a team of gut-specialist dietitians, as well as creating her own gut health food brand Bio&Me to bridge the gap between science and the food industry. Frustrated that her findings weren’t reaching the public, and instead seeing fad and potentially dangerous misinformation on gut health being spread, Megan took to social media to share credible, evidence-based advice, building an engaged community of over 260,000 people so far. Megan has also been recognised as Business Insider’s Top 100 Coolest People in Food & Drink and named Young Australian Achiever of the Year in the UK 2020.
