The DAVINCI International Online Conference on Vitamin D and Covid-19 is a series of “on-demand” video conference recordings and virtual interactions, available now through November 21, 2021, on “Optimizing Immunologic Functions that Help Reduce Risk for Infection, Morbidity and Mortality by Vitamins D, C & Integrative Orthomolecular Medicine Measures. Nutrients and vitamins that help provide during the COVID-19 pandemic.” This new type of conference arises from the need to make scientific information available to society with special properties: quick, unfiltered and inexpensive, for experts and laypeople, without limitations in the number of participants.
With this “Direct Access to Virtual International and National Conference information” (DAVINCI) event, the latest scientific information about vitamin D and other nutrients can be collected and distributed world-wide. The goal is to overcome the Covid-19 pandemic – and more!
Event tickets are $57.30
Conference Packages are an additional $22.92 (see below for details)
On-Demand Access to the Latest Science-Based Information
Watch the ‘super-star scientists’ in the field of vitamin D discuss how it relates to infectious diseases and COVID-19, reducing risk for morbidity and mortality from COVID-19, and so much more. Dr. Michael Holick, Conference President, urges everyone to “encourage improving vitamin D status in all adults and children world-wide to help in fighting this pandemic.” Use this opportunity to sharpen your understanding of the reason vitamin D is vital in this fight, and arm yourself with the knowledge and resources you will need to share this urgent message with others.
Speakers include GrassrootsHealth Panel Scientists Michael F. Holick, PhD, M. D., William B. Grant, PhD, Martin Hewison, PhD, and Jörg Spitz, Prof. Dr. med..
3 Panel Presentations
(for a full list of lectures and speakers, click here)
Panel I: Focus on Immunologic Functions of Vitamin D
The first panel of the conference will present the extraordinary properties of vitamin D – both in terms of infections in general and the Covid 19 pandemic in particular.
Panel II: Looking over the rim: Focus on Vitamin C and other complementary measures of Orthomolecular Medicine in the context of Covid-19
In the second panel, experts will explain the effect of positive factors (other than Vitamin D) on our immune system and the resulting possibilities of orthomolecular medicine for the prevention and therapy of viral infections.
Panel III: The Prevention and Management of Long Covid and the Side Effects of Covid Vaccines
Covid-19 is part of our life now. Some Covid-19 infected people may have lingering symptoms of Covid-19, also known as Long Covid. Many people have received or are receiving Covid-19 vaccines, which are required in certain jobs and public areas, including travel. Some people are hesitant about vaccines due to the potential vaccine side effects, but when it comes to vaccination and your job, it’s a very hard decision to make. This third panel will discuss the mechanisms of Long Covid and vaccine side effects and what you can do to prevent and manage if you do have these problems, as well as “Covid-19 and Pregnancy.”
After the closing of the event, the presentation of the experts will be evaluated by the participants and discussions organized with the corresponding authors and the keynote speakers. These discussions again will be made available online and are a component of the event ticket.

Enroll and test your levels today, learn what steps to take to improve your status of vitamin D (see below) and other nutrients and blood markers, and take action! By enrolling in the GrassrootsHealth projects, you are not only contributing valuable information to everyone, you are also gaining knowledge about how you could improve your own health through measuring and tracking your nutrient status, and educating yourself on how to improve it.
How Can You Use this Information for YOUR Health?
Having and maintaining healthy vitamin D and other nutrient levels can help improve your health now and for your future. Measuring is the only way to make sure you are getting enough!
STEP 1 Order your at-home blood spot test kit to measure vitamin D and other nutrients of concern to you, such as omega-3s, magnesium, essential and toxic elements (zinc, copper, selenium, lead, cadmium, mercury); include hsCRP as a marker of inflammation or HbA1c for blood sugar health
STEP 2 Answer the online questionnaire as part of the GrassrootsHealth study
STEP 3 Using our educational materials and tools (such as our dose calculators), assess your results to determine if you are in your desired target range or if actions should be taken to get there
STEP 4 After 3-6 months of implementing your changes, re-test to see if you have achieved your target level(s)
