The Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will hold a two-day, hands-on seminar May 6-7, 2014, to teach the many ways in which light affects, and can be used to improve, health and wellbeing. Light of the appropriate quantity, spectrum, timing, duration, and distribution can have a profound effect on sleep, alertness, and performance, along with overall wellbeing, and can be used to improve conditions such as jet lag, Alzheimer’s disease, insomnia, and depression.
The goal of this seminar is to provide attendees with the latest research as it can be applied, and the knowledge necessary to improve our modern living environments with efficient, dynamic lighting. This seminar will be of critical interest to those within the field of healthcare, lighting industry professionals, researchers in the biological sciences, facility managers, architects, and others.
