THE GENE SMART DIET – Presentation and Book Signing, with Dr. Ski Chilton, Free, Pre-Register
7:00 – 8:15 p.m., Monday, September 28th
Curious about the connection between our genes, our diet, and our health? Recent findings suggest that our typical diets and lifestyles are working against our genes rather than with them, resulting in a net effect that has been devastating to our waistlines, not to mention our overall health. Join us for this fascinating presentation by Dr. Ski Chilton, author of The Gene Smart Diet, and learn about his ground breaking new approach to health and fitness. Dr. Chilton is a pioneer in the study of gene-based nutrition and inflammatory diseases and is the author of two earlier books, Inflammation Nation and Win the War Within. He is a professor of Physiology and Pharmacology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Director of the NIH-sponsored Wake Forest Center for Botanical Lipids, and Senior Associate Director for Research for the Program for Complementary and Integrative Medicine at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center.
