"Vitamin D and health - emerging themes from recent research" - Tue, 2 February

MCHRI presents Professor Robert Scragg - 2nd February, 12-1pm, TRF building seminar room 3

Robert Scragg is Professor of Epidemiology at the School of Population Health, University of Auckland. He is a graduate of Adelaide Medical School and trained in epidemiology in the late 1970s at the CSIRO Division of Human Nutrition, in Adelaide, where he became interested in vitamin D and cardiovascular disease. He is a principal investigator on the ViDA Study, a large randomised trial to determine if vitamin D supplementation prevents cardiovascular disease and other adverse health outcomes.
Over the last 5 years several large scale vitamin D supplementation trials have commenced, including the Vitamin D Assessment (ViDA) Study just completed in Auckland.  Prof Scragg will give an overview of these trials and vitamin D research issues which have emerged since they started.

PLEASE RSVP to by 29 January
