As part of our Fitness Friday interview series, today’s show is about one of my favorite subjects, muscle health, COVID, and disease immunity. And, we have just the person to discuss it with us in Dr. Suzette Pereira.

Suzette Pereira, Ph.D., is an Associate Research Fellow at Abbott leading studies focused on muscle health and muscle loss due to aging.

Dr. Pereira’s research is focused on evaluating nutritional therapies that can prevent muscle and strength declines due to sarcopenia, hospitalization, and chronic diseases. She has led preclinical studies to identify key ingredients (such as HMB) that can prevent muscle wasting. Her current work is focused on translating the findings from preclinical studies to human clinical studies to help improve nutritional products for adults.

We’ll be talking about sarcopenia, muscle wasting, chronic disease, and muscle loss, general muscle health.

Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show, Dr. Suzette Pereira.
