Posted on: October 25, 2014   by  Vitamin D Council


A new seminar titled, “Vitamin D for Public Health,” will take place December 9th through 10th at the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Health in La Jolla, California.

This seminar is being hosted by GrassrootsHealth and UC San Diego School of Medicine.

The seminar will focus mainly on the science of vitamin D and sunshine and how it relates to public health.

It will feature talks by renowned vitamin D experts, such as Dr. Michael Holick, Professor of Medicine at Boston University School of Medicine.

It will also feature the Vitamin D Council’s board member and founder of the Sunlight, Nutrition, and Health Research Center, Dr. William Grant, and many more.

The speakers will discuss several subjects including the risks and benefits associated with sun exposure, the benefits of sun exposure other than vitamin D, and vitamin D’s relation to health conditions including breast cancer, prostate cancer, and preterm births.

They will also address what measurements and strategies need to be taken to apply vitamin D research into public health practice and policy.

The event is designed for doctors, researchers, psychologists, and anyone else who is interested in moving public health forward.
