Integrating Sunshine, Supplements
and Measurement for Optimal Health

December 9th & 10th, 2014
Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine
La Jolla, CA

Speakers               Agenda               Registration

  • What benefits does the sun provide other than vitamin D?
  • What’s the risk/benefit of vitamin D and sunshine for health?
  • What’s the implementation plan for public health organizations?
  • What does the research tell us about prevention of preterm births, prostate cancer, and breast cancer?
  • What measurements can help move science into action?

 

Please join us for a 2 day seminar to highlight the science of vitamin D and sunshine and create your group’s implementation plan to optimize health.

I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
