In this program, Dr. Julita Baker will share insight into the inner workings of our gut microbiome and how it contributes to every part of health and disease. She will describe the importance of why we should care about the gut microbiota, what we need to eat to flourish healthy strains of bacteria, what lifestyle actions support a healthy microbiome, and how we can sequence our own material (poop!) to learn more about the strains we currently have.
Julita received a Ph.D. from University of California, Davis in Nutritional Biology after shifting from Microbiology working in the Microbial Ecology Program at the Joint Genome Institute. She has designed and taught courses at Stanford University, and is also a nutrition advisor & speaker for organizations, start-ups, and entrepreneurs. She collaborates, deconstructs complex nutritional and behavioral science, and translates research into actionable tools.
