Winthrop CAO Participates in IOM Study

John F. Aloia, MD, Winthrop's Chief Academic Officer (CAO) and Director of Winthrop's Bone Mineral Research Center, recently served on the Committee to Review Dietary Reference Intakes for Vitamin D and Calcium for the Institute of Medicine (IOM) - one of the most influential and prestigious health policy organizations in the country. The committee assessed and updated the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) for vitamin D and calcium, with special consideration given to chronic and non-chronic disease indicators and to the impact of insufficient or excessive intake of vitamin D and calcium. The group recently published its findings, "Dietary Reference Intakes for Calcium and Vitamin D," in the National Academies Press. The report includes a detailed chart that lists Estimated Average Requirements, Recommended Dietary Allowances, and Upper Level Intakes for both vitamin D and calcium across the lifespan.
