Metabolic Health Summit (MHS) is the leading international scientific conference on metabolic health! This annual experience brings together world-renowned physicians, scientists, and thought leaders who are researching the powerful potential of our daily choices in fighting disease, extending life, and improving human performance. MHS was founded under Metabolic Health Initiative, an organization with a mission to revolutionize science and medicine by refocusing attention on the importance of nutrition and metabolism.

The 5th Annual Metabolic Health Summit and Centennial Celebration of the Ketogenic Diet will be held May 6th - May 9th in beautiful Santa Barbara, California! To celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the ketogenic diet being created as a metabolic therapy for epilepsy, we’re also hosting a day during the conference dedicated entirely to brain health in partnership with The International Neurological Ketogenic Society and The International Society of Neurogastronomy.

At this four-day immersive event, 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 was created for YOU!
