Gut Health and Disease at Livingston Public Library

On the morning of Thursday March 19th, starting at 11 am, the Livingston Public Library will present an informative health lecture entitled “Gut Health and Disease”

The presenter is Laura Rokosz, a pharmacologist and food scientist with 28 years of experience in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

The bacteria or the microbiome that reside in the large intestine are the gate-keepers of our immune system and so much more. They are essential for digestion, the integrity of our digestive tract, and for the production of the hormones and neurotransmitters that regulate just about every function in the body. An imbalance of unhealthy and healthy microbes in the intestines may contribute to weight gain, high blood sugar, high cholesterol and other disorders

In this presentation Laura will illustrate how poor gut health contributes to every disease known to man and how to improve gut health in order to reduce disease risk.

Laura received her B.S., M.S., and Ph.D in Food Science from Rutgers University and is the current Chair of the Rutgers Food Science Advisory Board. Dr. Rokosz was employed with Schering-Plough, Merck and Pharmacopeia where she supported drug discovery efforts related to Metabolic diseases, Infectious disease, Autoimmune disorders, Alzheimer’s disease and Cancer. She is the author of over 40 peer-reviewed journal articles including five Expert Opinion articles on Obesity and Cancer. A number of her blogs on fitness and nutrition have recently been published on the syndicated website, Mind Body Green.

Dr. Rokosz is currently the owner of EGGLROCK Nutrition, LLC, an Integrative Healthcare practice providing dietary and lifestyle guidance for disease prevention and health maintenance

Dr. Rokosz also teaches a variety of nutrition courses at Kean University, Rutgers University and Stevens Institute of Technology, and she teaches group fitness classes at the Gateway Family YMCA of Union, NJ. Her weekly podcast, “Eat Right with Laura” can be found on her website at www.egglrock.com.

The program is free but needs registration either via the library calendar at www.livingstonlibary.org , in person, or by calling 973 992 4600
