In this episode we were joined by Dr Farrah Jawad who is a Consultant in Musculoskeletal, Sport & Exercise Medicine at Pure Sports Medicine in London (and within the NHS), has worked extensively in elite sport, and has undertaken research at the Royal Ballet looking at seasonal variation in Vitamin D levels among its dancers. We talked about how important Vitamin D is, how common insufficiency is, where we can source Vitamin D, and its link with foot and ankle pathology.
