Michael Holick, Ph.D., M.D., professor of medicine, physiology and biophysics at Boston University School of Medicine, and author of, The Vitamin D Solution, will discuss his research conclusion that 70 percent of children don’t get enough vitamin D which puts them at risk of cardiovascular problems later in life.
