Description: Is “Circadian Lighting” just the latest trend to encourage use of a more expensive technology? In this program we will explore the justification behind this principle and show how International WELL Building Institute is incorporating it into their standards. This new metric reinforces the importance of quality lighting and promotes HEALTH as an important criteria for lighting design.

Learning Objectives:

• Describe the impact of lighting on human health and wellness starting with the physiology behind the visual system and the link to circadian wellness.
• Identify 2 Circadian models: Equivalent Melanopic Lux (as Promoted by the International Well Building Institute) and Circadian Stimulus (as promoted by the Lighting Research Center)
• Explore the LIGHT feature within the International WELL Building Standard
• Propose a method for how to implement Circadian Health into Lighting Design.
