Physician to speak on the next health frontier at Center for Environment

Center for the Environment

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

Bread Riot, a nonprofit food advocacy organization, will offer a food tasting at 6:15 p.m. Magryta will speak at 7 p.m. in Room 300.

Magryta will present an update on the developing science of the microorganisms that inhabit the digestive system and how they influence health.

“The science of the microbiome has been rapidly advancing, and the results are profound,” he said.

Magryta, who joined Salisbury Pediatrics in 1999, has an 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, 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 program is free and open to the public, but registration is required. To register, call 704-637-4791 or visit www.CenterForTheEnvironment.org.
