Metabolic Health Summit (MHS) is an international scientific conference on metabolic health co-hosted by Dr. Angela Poff, Dr. Dominic D'Agostino, and Victoria Field, and under the organization Metabolic Health Initiative (MHI). MHI was founded by Dr. Angela Poff and Victoria Field with a mission to revolutionize science and medicine by refocusing attention on the importance of nutrition and metabolism in treating disease, extending life, and improving human performance. Metabolic Health Initiative is dedicated to providing the most cutting edge evidence-based education to scientists, healthcare professionals, and the general public through digital content and live events.

Each year, MHS brings together world-renowned clinicians, academics, and thought leaders who are researching metabolic health, ketogenic therapy, and the powerful potential of our daily choices. At this four-day immersive experience, you'll have the opportunity to learn about ground-breaking scientific research on ketosis and metabolic therapies, explore an expo with innovative food, technology, and optimization-focused brands, immerse yourself in an international scientific poster session, hear inspirational success stories, and enjoy incredible networking opportunities with world-class entertainment in between. Whether you're a medical professional, academic, or simply want to learn about metabolic health, this conference is for YOU!

The 5th Annual Metabolic Health Summit & 101 Year Celebration of the Ketogenic Diet will be held May 5th - May 8th of 2022 in Santa Barbara, CA! The pandemic unfortunately didn't allow for us to gather for the 100 year anniversary of the ketogenic diet being created as a metabolic therapy for epilepsy. So this year, we’re throwing an extra special celebration to mark 101 years of ketogenic therapy at the 5th Annual Metabolic Health Summit held at the beautiful Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort! Enjoy a getaway alongside the stunning California coast while learning the latest science on ketosis and metabolic health!
