Light affects almost every aspect of our lives yet it remains an enigma. Humans have been on earth for about 6 million years but we are still wrestling with a fundamental understanding of light. In the last century Einstein proposed that light consists of particles “that are localized in space, move without dividing, and can be absorbed or generated only as a whole”. That revolutionary position disrupted the accepted belief that light was a wave. It was in the 1980’s that advanced research began on a third class of photoreceptors in addition to the rod and cone cells. There is still so much that we do not know about light – and what could be more important than how light affects our health? Join us on July 15th for a special 90 minute webinar to hear directly from the researchers discovering how light is changing our bodies and our lives. Harvard Medical, Stanford & Thomas Jefferson Universities and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai share their research that is helping to chart the course for not just the lighting industry – but for humanity.
Webinar participants are eligible for one and a half (1.5) IES Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
