In this episode, Missy Sturges interviews Dr. Muhammad Yunus, a board certified rheumatologist and retired professor from the University of Illinois College of Medicine.

This is an exciting episode for the Vitamin D Council, as we branch out with another nonprofit collaboration. Today, Dr. Yunus discusses fibromyalgia disease etiology, disease management and debunks incorrect stereotypes associated with Fibromyalgia. Dr. Cannell also joins the conversation to share the plausible mechanism by which vitamin D affects fibromyalgia, and shares the most recent research developments on the topic.
