One of the most pressing needs the vitamin D community has is to identify and treat vitamin D deficient pregnant women. Professor Bruce Hollis has been at this issue for more than a decade and was recently senior author on a paper out of the University Teaching Hospital in the United Arab Emirates that looked at vitamin D supplementation during pregnancy. Doctor Adekunle Dawodu, from the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center conducted the study.
