This unique event is a 2-day symposium preceded by a 1-day pre-symposium workshop.

The pre-symposium workshop provides clinical training in patient assessment and treatment approaches and protocols aimed at helping individuals to develop metabolic flexibility (which includes keto-adaptation). Metabolic flexibility refers to an individual's capacity to seamlessly modify fuel oxidation to fuel availability and life's demands. Lack of metabolic flexibility is among the most important factors contributing to the current type 2 diabetes and obesity spiral.

 
The theme of metabolic flexibility continues throughout the symposium. Day 1 provides a big picture overview of the challenges as well as the solutions, looking also at how clinicians and patients can work within an upstream-focused, participatory and collaborative framework to prevent and combat metabolic diseases.


Day 2 of the symposium involves a deeper dive into the subject area, looking at background theory, evidence and protocols related to establishing metabolic flexibility. While the day's programme is intended especially for clinicians, any interested members of the public are welcome to attend if they wish to familiarise themselves with the greater level of detail. Participants, whether clinicians or members of the public, can expect to be able to put into practice protocols and other clinical pearls immediately following the conference.
