This session will focus on the relationship between the gut microbiome and the development of CVD. New research suggests that certain foods/dietary patterns increase the production of TMAO by the gut microbiome and this increases CVD development and other metabolic dysfunction. A review of dietary patterns and nutrients that impact the gut microbiome and the risk for CVD will be presented.

Planned with the Committee for Lifelong Learning.
