As a DO-HEALTH partner, in collaboration with the coordinating DO-HEALTH partner at the University of Zurich, Prof. Siebert and his team will use DO-HEALTH findings to develop a comprehensive disease and health economic model for vitamin D supplementation, omega-3 fatty acid supplementation, and a well-defined home exercise program combining prospectively collected patient-reported resource utilization and utility data, modeling downstream endpoints on a country-specific basis.
