The Ties that Bind: Microbiome, Immunity and Child Development
With Pediatrician Robert Murray, MD, Director, Murray MD Nutrition LLC

November 10, 2021, 2:00–3:00 pm ET
Young children are uniquely susceptible to dietary inadequacy which can jeopardize proper brain development and physical growth. The tightly connected intestinal microbiome, gut epithelium, and submucosal immune system are dependent on specific nutrients to maintain their function and homeostatic balance. Threats to this balance, especially during times of rapid child growth, can lead to long term repercussions. Pediatrician Robert Murray, MD will guide practitioners through this critical homeostatic balance; how to identify clinical risk; and dietary interventions to heal intestinal injury, lower inflammation, reestablish protective microbial populations, and strengthen normal immune balance to restore full growth potential.

Learning Objectives
1. Describe the critical connection between the intestinal microbiome, the gut epithelial layer, and immune function.
2. Outline the clinical red flags that threaten homeostatic balance, especially during times of rapid child growth, and the steps that lead to growth faltering.
3. List the tools that a clinician can use to identify risk early in the course, and the nutritional interventions that will establish homeostasis.
