"Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) account for 71% of all deaths globally, and the economic burden of these diseases is alarmingly unsustainable."

Interview with Rodney Dietert, PhD, Cornell University Professor Emeritus, Author of The Human Superorganism

Can Microbiome Science Bring about a Sea Change in Medical Care?

A growing number of experts envision fundamental changes in the way doctors diagnose and treat disease, potentially ushering in a new era of sustainability in healthcare.

The World Asthma Foundation introduces the Microbiome First - Pathway to Sustainable Healthcare initiative and invites healthcare professionals, non-communicable disease community leaders, and stakeholders to participate in the inaugural Microbiome First Summit, a pathway to sustainable healthcare.
Summit Details:
The goal of sustainable healthcare is to improve quality of life at reduced cost by addressing the microbiome first, as recent research shows that all of these non-communicable diseases have a relationship to the microbiome.

The two-day virtual summit brings together thought leaders to present Microbiome First strategies, beyond the soundbites and buzzwords, that is designed to provide thoughtful and meaningful discussions.

Noncommunicable diseases and conditions or NCDs are the number 1 world-wide cause of death. Most of the more than 150 chronic disorders fall into three major categories (allergic, autoimmune or inflammatory). They are also known by the systems they affect:
Respiratory (asthma, COPD)
Cardiovascular (atherosclerosis, stroke)
Metabolic (diabetes, obesity)
Neurologic (depression, autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s)
Gastrointestinal (IBD, celiac, crohn's)
Urogenital (PCOS, chronic kidney disease)
Dermal (psoriasis)
Endocrine (Addison’s), and various cancers
Systemic NCDs also exist (e.g., lupus and frailty). Both the risk of and persistence of NCDs are significantly influenced by the human microbiome.

The Microbiome First - Pathway to Sustainable Healthcare is a suggested 21st century healthcare paradigm that prioritizes the entire human, the human superorganism, beginning with the microbiome.
What You'll Learn:
The Microbiome First - Pathway to Sustainable Healthcare summit panel discussion aims to kickstart a 21st century healthcare paradigm that prioritizes:
Focus on the human microbiome that could facilitate the move toward sustainable healthcare
How certain keystone bacteria and critical windows of development show that changes in even a few microbiota-prioritized medical decisions could make a significant difference in health across the life course
Barriers and challenges
Sessions:
Individual sessions will cover relevant issues including:
Societal cost of NCDs including the allergic,autoimmune or inflammatory process
The impact and burden of NCDs to those that suffer and costs to your pocket book and the global economy
Environmental impacts to overall health and the Microbiome
Critical windows
Current global clinical trials
Microbiome management
Microbiome success stories

Keynote

The cost of Healthcare increases each year, but overall health of the general population does not improve. Non-communicable diseases kill millions of people but there are very few cures. This summit aims to change the way NCDs are managed.
