Gut talks: Conversations about the human microbiome

The human body is home to trillions of microbes; in fact, we have more microbial cells than human ones. These microbes affect our digestion, fight off disease, and can even influence our mood. If you'll be at the Me and My Microbes exhibit at Ottawa's Canadian Museum of Nature, reserve your spot for a gut talk presented by a UCalgary expert.
