We are delighted to invite you to the 2017 Food as Medicine Update: Microbiome at the bedside and beyond, to be held at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute in Toronto on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 from 12:00pm to 5:30pm. This continuing education event is held under the auspices of Continuing Professional Development, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, Department of Nutritional Sciences, and St. Michael's Hospital. It is designated as a University of Toronto Continuing Professional Development Accredited Event.

The Food as Medicine Update series was created to address the knowledge-gap in continuing medical education related to the role of nutrition in patient care.

The 2017 Food as Medicine Update is a half day symposium for healthcare professionals designed to address the emerging interest in the gut microbiome in health and chronic disease. It is accredited as a group learning continuing medical education activity by the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) office at the University of Toronto.

A special feature of the 2017 Food as Medicine Update will be the Rundle-Lister Lectureship in Transformative Nutritional Medical Education, which will be awarded this year to Dr. Philip Sherman, MD, FRCPC in recognition of his outstanding contributions to translational research in the field of gut microbiome and health.

We look forward to welcoming you at the 2017 Food as Medicine Update.

Sincerely,

2017 Food as Medicine Update Steering Committee
