February 2018 Webinar
This webinar will offer an overview in the latest thinking about lighting and its impact. Since there have been so many presentations, magazine articles, and research studies on the circadian (24-hour body clock) side of Human Centric Lighting (HCL), the presenter will briefly touch upon these concepts to set context.
