Dr. David Suskind, a Professor of Pediatrics at the Department of Gastroenterology at Seattle Children's Hospital, is known for his ongoing efforts to study the intricate connections between IBD, Nutrition, and the microbiome.
He conducts ongoing research, participates in and speaks at national conferences, and, most importantly, he is extremely generous with his time and attention when he meets his young patients and their worried parents at the hospital every day.
As part of his mission to teach the importance of nutrition, he created the site Nimbal. The site was launched a few years ago to help patients, families, and healthcare providers integrate dietary therapy as treatment for Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
This week Dr. Suskind is launching yet one more tool he developed to help IBD kids: a comic book for IBD education with an emphasis on the microbiome and healthy nutrition.
