For health professionals…I am excited to share some news about my upcoming digestive health seminar at District Hall in Boston, Massachusetts on February 26, 2016.
Dr. William Chey, global expert in functional gut disorders and gastrointestinal motility, Professor of Internal Medicine, Director of the GI Physiology Laboratory and Director of Medical Services for the Michigan Bowel Control Program at the University of Michigan, will provide the latest research on food intolerances and irritable bowel syndrome.
Dr. Mark Pimentel, FRCPC, world renown small intestinal bacterial overgrowth expert, director of the Gastrointestinal Motility Program and Laboratory at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center will also join this digestive health seminar via a taped Skype interview with me providing the latest about methane positive small intestinal bacterial overgrowth including current and future treatments. Dr. Pimentel has been awarded various investigator-driven grants related to gastrointestinal motility. His primary research interests involve irritable bowel syndrome and its relationship to small intestinal motility and bacterial overgrowth.
