How will Stretch Goals be Used?
Thank you all for helping with the vitamin D study. I thought you would like to know that two new patients were enrolled in our vitamin d study today!
I am still able to receive additional funds above the minimum goal, and they would be put to good use, if you know of anyone who is considering donating. With additional funding, we can add new patients. Research is an evolving field. We are identifying new ways to study vitamin D with heart patients, and every dollar will be put towards effective treatment of vitamin D deficiency! For example, we have seen evidence that vitamin D may optimize hormonal balance, including testosterone. No one has ever studied this particular area for heart patients. Maybe we will be the first!
