Prof. Marotta has been invited by VCC Preventive Medical Foundation to join its organized Functional Medicine network China meeting, held in Shanghai Oct 20-21, 2018. The meeting was largely successful with also live connected physicians and gathered prime speakers of functional medicine, laboratories and public hospitals from China and Taiwan. The meeting set a number of solid Evidence-Based diagnostic and interventional protocols mingling modern Functional Medicine and a scientifically re-visited TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). The overall vision reinforced the concept that medical practice, i.e. taking good health surveillance and care needs multiple tools within an united operating framework. The talk of prof. Marotta was on gut microbiota and cardiovascular disease.
