Physician to Speak on the Next Frontier in Human Health at Center for Environment


Salisbury pediatrician Dr. Chris Magryta will speak on “The Human Microbiome: The Next Frontier in Human Health” on Tuesday, November 14 at the Center for the Environment at Catawba College.

Bread Riot, a non-profit food advocacy organization, will offer a food tasting at 5:45, and Magryta will speak at 6:30 p.m. in Room 300.

Magryta will present an update on the developing science of the microorganisms that inhabit our digestive system and how they influence our health. “The science of the microbiome has been rapidly advancing, and the results are profound,” he says.

Magryta, who joined Salisbury Pediatrics in 1999, has a special interest in pediatric allergies, asthma, and immunology. He received his undergraduate degree from Vassar College and his medical training from Emory University School of Medicine and the University of Virginia.

In addition to general pediatric care, Dr. Magryta provides specialized care in wellness and nutrition, combining alternative medicine with traditional medicine. He has studied Integrative Medicine with Dr. Andrew Weil at the University of Arizona School of Medicine. Over the years, he has participated in missionary work in Ecuador and Belize.

The event is open to the public without charge, but registration is required.
