There is growing interest in the association of the gut microbiome with diseases, including psychiatric disorders. In this interactive workshop, Marci will describe the most recent research related to the complex interplay between digestive disorders (DDs) and eating disorders (EDs). She will describe the four most common pathways that lead to digestive symptoms in this population, describe alterations in the gut microbiome, immune function, and neuroinflammation observed in the ED population, and describe the subsequent effect on recovery.

Marci will also describe the current implications and recommendations for future research in exploring novel treatment interventions like probiotic supplementation and fecal microbiota transfer. Time will be saved for discussion and Q&A.
