An Evening with Brett Finlay
September 27, 2019 –
Dr. B. Brett Finlay, PhD, a professor of microbiology at the University of British Columbia and a world leader in how bacterial infections work, will present his new documentary Let Them Eat Dirt and discuss the influence of our bodies’ microbiome on our health. Based on the best scientific literature published to date —including the authors’ cutting-edge work— Let Them Eat Dirt will change the way you view dirt and food, and empower you to give your kids a healthier start in life. There is much that parents can do about this, including breastfeeding if possible, getting a dog, and avoiding antibiotics unless necessary—and yes, it is OK to let kids get a bit dirty.
