Clinical/Culinary Track - The Positive Benefits of Mindful Eating
Limited Capacity seats available

Mindfulness is a state and trait characterized by a focused attention and awareness of present experiences. Mindfulness has been shown to have positive effects in a number of areas including mental health and self-regulation. Recent research suggests that mindfulness may be beneficial in the eating realm. Dr. Meier will present research showing that mindfulness is associated with reduced food intake, healthier food choices, increased positive affect when eating chocolate, and improvements in disordered eating. Mindfulness appears to be a variable that benefits eating-related self-regulation.

Clinical/Culinary Track - A Healthy Gastrointestinal Microbiome is Dependent on Dietary Diversity
The gastrointestinal (GI) microbiome in the colon is an ecosystem that is fed about 3 – to 4- hours after ingesting a meal.  A healthy ecosystem is a diverse biome with multiplicity of interactions.  When biodiversity is lost, few species become dominant and the GI microbiome is considered unhealthy.  The major energy force entering this system is nutrients from diet that have not been digested or are partially digested but not absorbed. The perspective that I wish to convey is that dietary diversity has been lost during the past 50 years because of decreased agrobiodiversity and the consequential shifts in the GI microbiome have contributed to the increased prevalence of several diseases.  
I will demonstrate that the increased prevalence of obesity, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease over the past 50 years all are recently characterized with less diverse GI microbiota species when compared to healthy cohorts.  During the same 5 decades, there was a dramatic narrowing of dietary diversity. I plan to introduce the notion that fad diets have the potential for reducing microbiome diversity and some practices may force the microbiota to harvest available substrates of our mucosa.  I will include a perspective on consuming plants grown organically that contain phytoalexins and could interact with the microbiome in a beneficial manner. 
Emulsifiers are commonly used in processing foods and recently are found to significantly shift the GI microbiome of mice. The best medicine for a healthy GI microbiome is maintenance of a diverse diet. In our busy lifestyles, we rely too much on food that is processed from the greatest productive species and modern agricultural practices.  There is a need to expand our narrowing dietary diversity. Enhancing diversity may require dietary microbiome modulators as dietary supplements or medical foods.

Clinical/Culinary Track - Pharmaceutical Management for Weight Loss in Patients with Obesity
Obesity was officially recognized as a chronic disease by the AMA in 2013. It contributes to both morbidity and mortality from numerous medical conditions including type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, dyslipidemia, stroke, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, and some cancers. The most recent data from the CDC shows the prevalence of obesity is 30-35% in 20 US states and is greater than 35% in 5 (LA, AR, MS, AL, WV). The estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the US is now $147 - $210 billion and rising. Given these facts it is imperative that health care professionals be prepared to assist patients in their weight loss efforts.
Since 2012 four new anti-obesity medications have been approved for long-term use by the FDA. Despite this, less than 2% of qualifying patients receive a prescription for anti-obesity medication. This talk will review the use of both new and older anti-obesity medications, along with the details of concern to both patients and prescribers. In addition we will look at which commonly prescribed medications might be associated with both weight gain and loss when used for other indications.

Academic Track - The Positive Benefits of Mindful Eating
Mindfulness is a state and trait characterized by a focused attention and awareness of present experiences. Mindfulness has been shown to have positive effects in a number of areas including mental health and self-regulation. Recent research suggests that mindfulness may be beneficial in the eating realm. Dr. Meier will present research showing that mindfulness is associated with reduced food intake, healthier food choices, increased positive affect when eating chocolate, and improvements in disordered eating. Mindfulness appears to be a variable that benefits eating-related self-regulation.

ALL ATTENDEES - Critical Aspects of the Intersection of Chefs and Physicians and Their Responsibility in the Food Supply
Food is one thing we all share and its power is unmistakable.  I come from a “food first” perspective and have dedicated the last 40 years to learning about and perfecting my culinary skills.  From icing and serving countless donuts at my first summer job to sharing recipes with Pakistani chefs and entrepreneurs in Islamabad, I know how food can communicate ideas while impacting the environment, politics and, most importantly, our health.  

As a chef who is also interested in leaving our kids and grandkids a sustainable future, I see how food fits into just about every challenge we face.  Food is the common denominator running through the fabric of society:  culture, energy, art, science, the economy, national security, the environment, health, politics, diplomacy – you name it.

Health is our most cherished attribute, and what we eat has such an impact on our bodies.  However, so many of us don’t see the correlation.  Being that doctors and chefs are trusted more than other professionals in the US, I feel that we are in a unique position to educate and allure people towards a healthy lifestyle.  Let’s explore how we can do this together!

ALL ATTENDEES - The Antimicrobial Stewardship through Food Animal Agriculture Toolkit Module
Evidence has demonstrated that hospital-based Antibiotic Stewardship Programs (ASPs) significantly reduce hospital rates of antibiotic resistant infections however most existing ASPs fail to address the upstream causes of greater community exposure to antibiotic resistant bacteria through the misuse of antibiotics outside the hospital.  An estimate of 70% of overall tonnage of antimicrobial agents sold in the US are distributed for use in food-producing animals.  Speakers will detail strategies documented in the Antimicrobial Stewardship through Food Animal Agriculture Toolkit Module.  Developed by an ad hoc subcommittee of the Clinician Champions in Comprehensive Antibiotic Stewardship (CCCAS) Collaborative and applying the CDC’s Core Elements of Antimicrobial  Stewardship, this module provides guidance and tools gleaned from successful hospital programs that have incorporated food procurement and clinician advocacy strategies into their hospital-based antibiotic stewardship programs. https://noharm-global.org/CCCASModule.  The CCCAS Collaborative is a joint initiative of Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) , Pediatric Infectious Disease Society (PIDS), and the national Sharing Antimicrobial Reports for Pediatric Stewardship (SHARPS) workgroup.

Antimicrobial Stewardship in Veterinary Medicine
Antimicrobial stewardship in veterinary medicine of production animal agriculture has a salient and distinct advantage over many stewardship programs found in human medicine.  In particular, most stewardship programs in human medicine involve hospital or institutional, or outpatient settings.  In contrast, veterinarians and producers can consider the entire healthy population of animals rather than focusing largely on this sick, infirmed or an otherwise institutionalized populations.  It is possible, therefore, to explore novel – and in some instances, highly effective – approaches that reduce the need for antimicrobial therapy that are not applicable to people.

At its core, antimicrobial stewardship is about preserving the efficacy of antimicrobial drugs into the future.  This is just as relevant in veterinary medicine as it is in human medicine in that the antimicrobial drugs approved for veterinarians to use are going to be similar to the drugs available in the decades to come.  To effectively treat animals in the future, we must preserve their efficacy today.  At the same time, we are seeing more target animal pathogens showing resistance, so producers and veterinarians have a very proximate motivator, in addition to the shared public health concern, to act.  Examples from around the world will be presented on approaches to reduce the need and use of antimicrobial drugs.
