The Innovations Seminar is pleased to announce that our Guest Speaker this year is Dr. Michael Holick, the leading expert on vitamin D, who has studied vitamin D for over 30 years. Through his research, we know that every human cell type has a receptor for vitamin D. Our bodies’ need for this vitamin goes much further than just bone health. Increasing vitamin D intake can treat, prevent, and even reverse a number of common ailments from high blood pressure to back pain; lessen the symptoms of chronic conditions such as diabetes and arthritis; and prevent infectious diseases, including H1N1.

Michael F Holick, PhD, MD, is the director of the General Clinical Research Unit and professor of medicine, physiology, and biophysics at Boston Medical Center. He has been quoted in The New Your Times, Newsweek, Men's Health, AARP, and Scientific American.

Wendy Dahl, PhD, is an Assistant Professor at the University of Florida Her research has focused on issues of nutrient fortification, particularly the diets of vulnerable populations such as the elderly. Dr. Dahl will present on the potential of bread as a widespread food source of vitamin D in North America.
