Metabolic Health Summit

About Metabolic Health Summit

Metabolic Health Summit (MHS) is a scientific conference that 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 in treating disease, extending life, and improving human performance.

This event is a four-day immersive experience that brings you the latest science on the ketogenic diet and metabolic therapies from the world's most progressive physicians, leading researchers, and top thought leaders. At MHS, you'll have the opportunity to learn about ground-breaking scientific research on health and performance, explore an expo with innovative brands in the human optimization space, immerse yourself in an international scientific poster session, hear inspirational success stories - all while enjoying incredible networking opportunities and 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!

We are proud to be hosting MHS 2020 at the beautiful Renaissance Long Beach Hotel! In the heart of the artistic-urban Long Beach community, this stunning space will open your senses and allow you to experience Los Angeles at its finest. Relax in the eclectic lobby, enjoy ocean-to-fork dining, or simply soak in the hotel's perfect blend of beach and city sophistication. Unwind with a refreshing swim or craft keto-friendly cocktail on the third-floor deck, and enjoy unbelievable views of the Pacific Ocean and the legendary Queen Mary from this deluxe Long Beach hotel.
