Yorba Linda, CA (PRWEB) January 19, 2016
Authorities in the United States and around the world have expressed contradictory viewpoints lately regarding vitamin D testing and treatment. How can clinicians and their patients make informed decisions about vitamin D options in light of the diverging views before them?
LabRoots, Inc will host DiaSorin in sponsoring a new, free educational webinar, “Clinical Controversies in Vitamin D Testing and Treatment,” which will discuss the wide range of current data and equip attendees to make decisions with confidence. Topics include how to determine which individuals may be at risk for low vitamin D, whether a physical exam can help determine vitamin D deficiency, if a multivitamin or prenatal vitamin is adequate to prevent vitamin D deficiency, what methods are optimal for guaranteeing adequate vitamin D levels, and which research questions remain unanswered.
The speaker, Gregory Plotnikoff, MD, MTS, FACP, of Minnesota Personalized Medicine and Minnesota Natural Medicine, is a board-certified internist and pediatrician who works in clinical practice. Dr. Plotnikoff has received many national and international awards for research and education, and is the lead author of one book, 23 textbook chapters, and more than 50 articles in the peer-reviewed medical literature. His 2003 article on vitamin D deficiency and chronic, non-specific musculoskeletal pain remains one of the most often-cited articles in the history of the Mayo Clinic Proceedings. He is a graduate of Carleton College, Harvard University Divinity School, and the University of Minnesota Medical School.
A live Q&A session will follow Dr. Plotnikoff’s presentation.
The free webinar, hosted by LabRoots, will be presented on February 29, 2016, at 9 am Pacific Time/11 am Central Time/12 pm Eastern Time.
