The 10th European Federation of the Associations of Dietitians (EFAD) conference is approaching and the publishing team of Gut Microbiota for Health is very pleased to be taking part with both a session and a booth!

On September 29th and 30th, 2017 the World Trade Centre in Rotterdam (the Netherlands) will host the 10th conference of EFAD, a federation of local dietetic associations from across Europe, which aims to promote the dietetic profession and support scientific and professional development for its 30+ member organizations. With its theme, ‘The Future is Now’, the 2017 conference provides an opportunity for EFAD’s 35,000 member dietitians from 27 European countries to learn about the latest science relevant to their practice.

The publishing team of Gut Microbiota for Health is pleased to announce that, at this important upcoming conference, the GMFH initiative has collaborated with the event’s organizers to develop a session on gut microbiota and nutrition. On September 30th, GMFH will bring together three esteemed speakers for a 90-minute session, “Microbiota; what research is telling us.” EFAD representative Peter Weijs of Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (the Netherlands) will chair the session with the following speakers:

  • Hervé Blottière (INRA, France)—Gut Microbiota structure and Functions: Scientific state of the art
  • Karine Clément (ICAN, France)—Modulating gut microbiota in cardiometabolic diseases; for who, what and when?
  • Stine Störsrud (University of Gothenburg, Sweden)— The impact of nutrients and diets on the gut microbiota

Over 350 dietitians have registered to attend the conference and more than 70 speakers, including international experts, will cover topics as diverse as microbiota, nutrigenomics, and food and mental health, among many others.
