"Reaching and maintaining optimal serum levels of Vitamin D can be the single fastest and most impactful way to increase overall health, however, up to 75% of the population is considered deficient... Mrs. Aliano plans to help spread the word."
Encinitas, CA (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
GrassrootsHealth, an organization focused on solving the Vitamin D deficiency epidemic through research and education, has named Jennifer Aliano their new Communications and Marketing Director.
Reaching and maintaining optimal serum levels of Vitamin D (40-60 ng/ml) can be the single fastest and most impactful way to increase overall health, however, up to 75% of the population is considered deficient (as cited at http://www.grassrootshealth.net/epidemic). Mrs. Aliano plans to help GrassrootsHealth spread the word that this modern day health dilemma, which is responsible for a multitude of health issues including pre-term birth (see "Vitamin D ‘may cut premature birth risk and protect newborn babies’"), heart disease, inflammatory pain, recurring colds, and an increased incidence of cancer (see "Endocrine Society Announces New Clinical Practice Guidelines for Vitamin D"), requires immediate action. More can be discovered about GrassrootsHealth and Vitamin D deficiency, as well as how to become an active participant in their community research projects, at http://www.grassrootshealth.net.
“We are thrilled to have Mrs. Aliano as a dedicated and valuable part of our team,” says Carole Baggerly, Founder and Director of GrassrootsHealth. “She has direct clinical experience with patients and sees the world through their eyes as well as that of a clinician. She will add valuable insights into our program to help individuals manage their own health."
Mrs. Aliano, an advocate for the education of holistic and integrative health options, has her background in Oriental Medicine, with additional certifications in herbology, nutrition, massage, and aromatherapy. While in practice, she focused on helping her patients create personalized routines for achieving optimal health, specializing in fertility enhancement and pregnancy.
Mrs. Aliano attained her MS in Oriental Medicine from Pacific College, her BA in Psychology from the University of California, San Diego with an emphasis in Pre-Medicine, and was the recipient of the Webster College Book Award for “The Most Outstanding Female Student” of her high school graduating class.
She, her husband, and two children reside in her hometown of Encinitas, CA.
