Did you know that your body is covered in trillions of microscopic bacterial passengers, known collectively as your "microbiome"? We know that these bacteria have significant impact on your physical and mental health. Join local physician and microbiome enthusiast Dr. Sarah Gupta for a introduction to the wide world of "belly bugs," and to learn simple diet and lifestyle changes you can make to improve your intestinal health.
Don't miss the first SF Microbiome meetup event: Microbiome Show 'N Tell! The event is organized by Fah Sathirapongsasuti and Karl Heilbron, and co-hosted by uBiome and IndieBio.
