Vitamin D: Connecting Science to Health

Brought to you by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Center for Professional Development with a special thank you to the content writer and presenter Michael Holick, PhD, MD. Presiding Officer: Carol Boushey, PhD, MPH, RD.

Planned with the FNCE Program Planning Advisory Committee

The alarming increase in vitamin D insufficiency in the United States has ironically coincided with an increasing recognition that Vitamin D likely has a broader contribution to the protection of health and prevention of disease than previously appreciated. This session will put into perspective: the rapid decline in vitamin D status in the United States; the implications of vitamin D insufficiency on skeletal, inflammatory and metabolic health among the population; and practical guidelines for how to get vitamin D from diet, sun exposure and supplements.
