Imagine if there were an organ in your body that weighed as much as your brain, that affected your health, your weight, and even your behavior. Wouldn’t you want to know more about it? There is such an organ — the collection of microbes in and on your body, your human microbiome.

I am a physician and this is a great insight into a area of the body that we have only begun to appreciate. I hope that you will be able to give CME credit in the future. Thank you for this wonderful presentation.

Uneven course material, some course material excellent. With some presenters delivery was excellent, some hard to understand, some material off-subject.

This was a great class; it covers all the basics and it is not too difficult for non-specialists to follow. The only complaint would be the quality of the discussions. Most people do not participate--fully and meaningfully--and the mentors are not always constructive.

As a nutrition science student I found this easy without being boring. Highly recommend to future or current nutrition professionals as an introduction, and to anyone else with an interest in gut health.
