 CIRCADIAN Light has just been approved by the American Institute of Architects to offer AIA Continuing Education courses for Health, Safety, and Welfare credits. Our first course offering is called "Circadian Lighting for Workplaces: Protecting Health and Improving Productivity." The course will educate architects and lighting designers that are specifying circadian lighting and want to gain an understanding of the key differences between the day, evening and nighttime impacts of the blue content of white light on circadian rhythms, human health and productivity.  Visit http://circadianlight.com/circadian-light-workplaces for more information, or to register.
