Class of 2026Dublin, California


Hello! My name is Nishika and my Polygence project is on the usage of Vitamin D in disease prevention and management. I chose to work on this project because I've always been fascinated by the intersection of nutrition and health, and wanted to further delve into this field.

Vitamin D's Role in Disease Prevention and Symptom Management

Started Mar. 16, 2023

Abstract or project description

Nishika will discuss Vitamin D's role both in healthy and sick people. To give a background, Nishika will discuss the role of Vitamin D in the normal, healthy body and what can occur if people of varying ages are deficient in Vitamin D. This background will allow her to discuss how Vitamin D can be helpful in prevention of common illness, like the cold and flu, and also help manage symptoms. She will also be looking into impact of Vitamin D on chronic illnesses, like diabetes and coronary artery disease.
