The Southwest Washington Gut Club has been a successful forum in our community for great educational presentations, sharing of ideas, and fantastic food for over 20 years. The Thurston-Mason County Medical Society is proud to be able to help see this tradition continue.


At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to identify:

  • the link of obesity to Metabolic Syndrome
  • the initial anatomic defect that facilitates the transition from obesity to Metabolic Syndrome
  • the specific dietary components and how to counter the pathophysiologic transition
  • the storehouse of the gut-derived inflammation
  • the diet(s) associated with the best long-term health outcomes and why
