L'impact de "l'éclairage circadien"

There has been an awakening of sorts this past year – an increased awareness of our personal surroundings as we have been limited in our ability to ‘roam freely about the cabin’ of life. We have explored, explained and experienced the importance of light in our daily lives. We should now be keenly aware that there are ways to surround ourselves with light that lead to healthier lives and safer environments.

This presentation is designed to demonstrate the impact circadian-effective lighting can have on overall health, wellness and safety for the general public in their everyday lives, from infants to older adults, from homes to hospital rooms. It will show attendees how to use the tools and techniques available to design these environments and review the significant body of research to support these outcomes.
