Let Them Eat Dirt

  • Medical Sciences (Macleod) Auditorium 1 King's College Circle Toronto, ON, M5S Canada (map)

Dr. Brett Finlay, Professor, Peter Wall Distinguished Professor, University of British Columbia, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Microbiology & Immunology

Are we creating too clean an environment for our children? The increasingly sanitized conditions in which we keep our kids is altering the beneficial bacteria in their bodies. Obesity, diabetes and asthma may be among the diseases that result. In this talk, we will explore what microbiology has to tell us about building a child’s immune system. An ideal talk for new parents and/or kids who hate to take baths!


Sunday programs at the Macleod Auditorium, 1 King’s College Circle, St George Campus, University of Toronto. All programs begin at 2 PM unless otherwise noted. Programs are free and open to all unless otherwise noted.
