Webinar: Leveraging Your Microbiome, to Prevent C. diff and Beyond – A Surgeon’s Perspective

Wednesday, July 14, 2021
7:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST

Dr. John Alverdy

In this webinar, eminent surgeon and microbiome expert Dr. John Alverdy of the University of Chicago discusses the impact of a degraded microbiome from a surgeon’s perspective. While microbiome dysbiosis is most closely associated with C. difficile infections, compromised gut immunity can make us vulnerable to a whole host of infections, particularly when we’re having surgery. Dr. Alverdy shares the risks of a degraded microbiome pre- and post-surgery, as well as under-appreciated risks of C. diff infections like post-infectious neuropathy.  The webinar is published on our YouTube channel:
