Gut Feelings: Microbes, Mood, and Metabolism

On Friday, December 4th, the UMHS Depression Center will be presenting Gut Feelings: Microbes, Mood, and Metabolism as part of their colloquium series. This colloquium has been created for health professionals and researchers with an interest in depression and related illnesses. The objective of this colloquium is to help physicians, researchers, social workers, psychologists, and other health care professionals increase their knowledge of the epidemiology, etiology, and treatment of depression. With greater understanding of recent advances in depression research and new treatment modalities, clinicians can make more informed decisions regarding patient care and help to translate research into practice. 

The program will run from 11:45 AM - 1:30 PM in the Rachel Upjohn Building auditorium (Garden Level), and offers 1.5 CE credits for psychiatrists, and social workers. There is no charge for attendance, and a pizza lunch is provided for those who register. For each colloquium, please arrive at 11:45 AM for lunch. The first speaker will begin promptly at 12 PM. If you are unable to attend in-person, a link to a live webcast of the presentation will be made available.
