Vitamin D: Health impacts beyond the bone
Date: 21 March (lunch from 12.30pm)
Venue: Great Hall, Strand Campus King’s College, London, WC2R 2LS
Vitamin D has long been known to be important for the development, growth and maintenance of a healthy skeleton, but there is increasing evidence that it also has an impact on a wide range of health outcomes.
The prevalence of hypovitaminosis D is high in many chronic conditions including HIV, metabolic-endocrine and cancer. There is a growing body of vitamin D research across King’s Health Partners, but there is limited interaction between the different groups. This seminar and networking event presents a good opportunity for collaboration across traditional speciality boundaries to maximise the scientific and clinical opportunities.
This seminar will be a showcase for current vitamin D research within King’s Health Partners. It will be useful for clinicians, scientists, health advisors, nurses, community health workers, and anyone else with a keen interest in vitamin D.
Delegates are invited to a light lunch followed by short formal presentations and the opportunity to meet new colleagues with an interest in vitamin D research.
