Light & Health Forum

The Light & Health Forum will return for its third year. Light has been shown to impact humans well beyond providing for optimal visual performance. This forum continues to explore the non-visual effects of light not only on humans, but also plants and wildlife. Current knowledge of the impact of light on biological health and overall well-being will be addressed with more detailed exploration into some of the new metrics and design guidelines that are guiding circadian lighting applications. The Light & Health Forum is sponsored by VISA LIGHTING, Booth 2061.
