Vitamin D's Impact during Pregnancy on Birth Outcomes: Webinar on 9/16


Last updated September 07, 2021

Vitamin D, the "sunshine vitamin" that our skin synthesizes when exposed to the UV rays of the sun, is most known for its bone health benefits, as it is a crucial driver of calcium homeostasis. Other health benefits of Vitamin D have been a subject of research for decades, and many studies have indicated that a sufficient level of Vitamin D in the mother may support healthy pregnancy, as well as the baby's first few years.

On Thursday, September 16 at 12:30 EDT, please join Dr. Bruce W. Hollis, professor of pediatrics at Medical University of South Carolina, in a complimentary webinar hosted by Ovaterra Institute, as Dr. Hollis explains the latest research on Vitamin D's multifaceted roles in prenatal health, as well as female reproductive health.
