Grassrootshealth Launches D*action Community Project to Solve Vitamin D Deficiency Crisis
Date:11/28/2008

word about the Scientists' Call to Action and the Disease Incidence Prevention Chart. Medical institutions must diagnose and treat vitamin D deficiency in their population centers.    

D*action Communities will focus on three major public health activities:

Diagnosing and treating vitamin D deficiency (hold two seminars in each community) to educate healthcare professionals.

Hold monthly presentations within each community to train the trainers in the community to spread the word. Testing of vitamin D levels to be held at each presentation.

Conduct a five year study with 2000 people in the community to evaluate the results of the program on disease prevention and aid in creating a long-term plan of action for the specific communities.

Communities wishing to initiate their own plan or partner with existing groups can contact Carole Baggerly at 619-823-7062.

Joining UC scientists Norman and Garland on December 2 will be experts in cardiology, cancer, diabetes, bone and muscle health.

It is expected that at the conclusion of the seminar, participants will be able to list at least ten vitamin D sensitive diseases, quantify potential benefits of solving the vitamin D deficiency crisis, quantify proper dosages in relation to diseases such as muscle weakness in the elderly, type 1 diabetes and several cancers; and interpret the serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D test for diagnostic and treatment measures; identify and quantify any risk categories for vitamin D treatment.

Healthcare professionals can register for the Diagnosis & Treatment of Vitamin D Deficiency seminar on December 2 by visiting www.grassrootshealth.org.
