UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center invites the community to join guest speaker Dr. Carolyn Slupsky for a presentation next Thursday, June 11, at the Tahoe Science Center in Incline Village.

Diet can have considerable effects on the gut microbiome and overall metabolism, and its quality has been linked with overall health.

Indeed, a diet high in refined sugars and fat has been linked with metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and other health conditions.

Dr. Slupsky will describe how diet can impact the gut microbiome, and how the microbes in our gut can influence our health.

Dr. Slupsky is a Professor in the Departments of Nutrition and Food Science & Technology at the University of California, Davis.

Her research focuses on understanding the link among food, the gut microbiome, and health.

The program will begin at 6 p.m. with refreshments and no-host bar from 5:30-6 p.m. at 291 Country Club Drive in Incline Village on the campus of Sierra Nevada College.
