APC Microbiome Ireland hosted a “Food for Thought; Eating for Digestive Health” event at The Cornstore restaurant in Cork.

The event sold out within a couple of days of posting on social media. Speakers on the night were Prof John Cryan “Gut Thinking – how microbes manipulate your brain”, Dr Susan Joyce “Healthy Weight – how your gut bacteria regulate cholesterol and control weight” and Dr John O’Grady “Role of Fibre – learn about the role of fibre in your bowel”.  A delicous 5 course menu was served on the evening which was packed with all sorts of healthy macro- and micronutrients.  The 105 attendees had some great questions for the speakers during the Q&A session afterwards.
