27 July 2011

Dale Benedict, Owner and Chairman of Bio-Tech Pharmacal, and his granddaughter Danielle Benedict help prepare a shipment of 1400 bottles of vitamin D to the Vitamin Council for an awareness campaign project.

Fayetteville, ARBio-Tech Pharmacal, Inc., a leading manufacturer of vitamin D, donated 1400 bottles of vitamin D to the Vitamin D Council to help launch a public awareness campaign. Bottles of vitamin D generally retail for about $10.00. Bio-Tech Pharmacal is located in Fayetteville, AR and distributes nutritional supplements worldwide.

The Vitamin D Council is starting an outreach campaign on the Central Coast of California to educate the general public about the importance of vitamin D. They will distribute informational materials and free vitamin D supplements at local forums, including farmer’s markets, health expos, school programs, and wellness centers to educate people and encourage them to act upon their health and well-being. The Council plans to distribute bottles of vitamin D to over 1000 individuals this fall. This program will help the Vitamin D Council determine how to best educate and reach the public on a larger scale.

Dr. John Cannell, Executive Director of the Vitamin D Council, said, “We’re going to start the pilot project in August but will probably be in full swing come September.” The Vitamin D Council is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c) (3) educational corporation in the State of California, founded in 2003 by John J. Cannell, M.D., on the conviction that humans all over the world are needlessly suffering from vitamin D deficiency.
