Join the University of North Carolina Nutrition Research Institute (NRI) at restaurant Forty Six for Appetite for Life with Folami Ideraabdullah, Ph.D. presenting Vitamin D and Human Health: 10 Things Your Mother Never Told You.

Vitamin D is an essential vitamin linked to human health and diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. It occurs naturally in fish, eggs, and red meat and  several common foods in the United States are fortified with vitamin D, including milk and breakfast cereals. Recently, measuring vitamin D status has become more prevalent as a clinical measure of health and supplementation is often recommended to restore adequacy. Dr. Ideraabdullah will discuss what vitamin D is made of, where it comes from and how it may impact your health.

At Forty Six, enjoy a relaxed atmosphere with food and drink and be encouraged to participate with your questions and comments. It's Appetite for Life – with a twist!
