Published on

Content and Visual Design by Tiffany Simms

As numerous as the stars in the sky, the ecosystem inside our bodies, gives hope to the lonely voices of autoimmune disease.

DrBonnie360 presents the microbiome lifeline at Cambridge HealthTech Institute's 23rd International Molecular Med Tri-Con. Showing Data and Digital Health is the glue that brings together research, clinical care, patients, and businesses, DrBonnie360 effectively tosses a lifeline across the autoimmune abyss.
