Advantages of Taking Vitamin D is Subject of February 16 CONN-OSHA Breakfast Roundtable
Session will be held at Labor Department’s Wethersfield Central Office

For immediate release
February 4, 2010

WETHERSFIELD - Mother was right about taking those vitamins; you definitely do need them. 

Especially important is Vitamin D – which controls bone growth and helps control autoimmune disease among other things –  the subject of a Feb. 16  Breakfast Roundtable Discussion meeting being sponsored by the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CONN-OSHA.)  Steven Oberle, DC MS, a clinical nutritionist with Center Chiropractic in West Hartford, will discuss the subject during the session, which will run from 815 to 9:45 a.m., in Conference Room A and B of the agency’s Central Office, located at 200 Folly Brook Boulevard. 

“Dr. Oberle will present important information on the topic of Vitamin D and its relationship to cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, pain, depression and brain development,” explains explains John Able, CONN-OSHA Safety Training Specialist, coordinator of the breakfast series. “Vitamin D is a very significant health topic, one that a majority of trhe public and many doctors themselves do not fully understand. By attending our Feb. 16 Breakfast Roundtable Discussion, participants will gain a better understanding of this topic, for themselves, their family members and co-workers.” 

Also continuing this month, according to Able, will be the discussion portion of the program. Time permitting, each person taking part will be asked to submit a question for discussion and everyone in the room will be invited to share their opinion regarding the issue.  

Admission to the roundtable is free, but pre-registration is required. To register for the breakfast roundtable or for additional information, please contact Able at (860) 263-6902, or via email at able.john@dol.gov.
