Gut Licrobiome in Preventing Diabetes – Professor Emad El-Omar Director of the Microbiome Research Centre at St George Hospital


Appreciation Night will be held on Thursday 9th May 2019 at Mortdale RSL 6.45 for 7.00pm

This foundation is at the cutting edge of finding links between your gut microbes and many of today’s diseases and is a world leader in the study of host genetics of gastric cancer

These diseases include: Gastro intestinal and liver cancer, bowel disease, ADHD, diabetes and arthritis and other diseases caused by inflammation.

Last year the federal government gave $34m plus a further $8m this year to this facility. www://
I am sure the story on how this research facility’s findings will benefit thousands in Australia and reduce our ever increasing health costs.

The Australian Lions N3 Diabetes Foundation has contributed over $8000000 to promote awareness of the dangers of diabetes. Currently about 10 % of the population in Australia are affected by diabetes which is a leading cause of heart attack, blindness, kidney failure and limb amputations Lugarno Lions Club will be a regular supporter through screening and education over many years to come.

Please come and enjoy an informative and thought provoking evening as we say thank you to those who helped us with our activities throughout the year.

A 2 course meal will be part of the evening at a cost of $35 per head and the bar will be open
