  Learning Objectives: At the end of the Session participants will: (1) understand that vitamin D is not really a vitamin, but really a steroid hormone with many effects; (2) develop an awareness of why vitamin D levels are important for all children: this is a public health issue; and (3) improving vitamin D levels can be achieved: it requires community involvement and comes with some risks.
