We have an exciting episode to share with our listeners today. Carole Baggerly sat down with Dr. Cannell to discuss the role of vitamin D in prenatal health.

Baggerly is the head of Grassroots Health, a fellow non-profit organization focusing on migrating vitamin D research into practice. Though faced with many challenges along the way, Baggerly and team found that pregnant women, their physicians and the institutions were ready to begin implementing vitamin D education, testing and supplementation into their prenatal regimen.

In this episode, Baggerly discusses the success of her vitamin D program for pregnant women in South Carolina and provides insight on a study in which she played an instrumental role in publishing regarding vitamin D status and premature birth risk.
