Residential Lighting to Host Free LED for the Aging Eye Webinar
May 17, 2013 - 8:45am
On June 11, 2013, architect and lighting designer Joe Rey-Barreau will discuss design applications for LED and solid-state lighting technologies that can positively affect human health.

On June 11, 2013, Residential Lighting will host a free CEU webinar titled “LED and Solid-State Lighting Opportunities for Aging Eyes, Health and Behavior,” sponsored by Access Lighting, Kichler Lighting, Kimberly LED Lighting, Auroralight and Antares Lighting.

From 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET, presenter Joe Rey-Barreau, architect and lighting designer with over 25 years of experience as a design professional and Associate Professor with tenure in the College of Design at the University of Kentucky, will discuss changes in LED and solid-state lighting and analyze design applications where these technologies can provide solutions for a variety of environments, particularly for the aging eye.

"At last year's ALA Conference, one of the best-attended sessions was on lighting for senior living environments, and it was clear that LED lighting offered several benefits for that segment,” says Laura Van Zeyl, Publisher and Editorial Director of Residential Lighting. “We wanted to explore that subject as well as LED's impact on human health and behavior at all ages, from sleep to productivity. Thanks to our sponsors, we are able to offer this webinar at no charge to participants, who can earn valuable CEUs by attending."

"As the huge Baby Boomer generation reaches retirement age, its demand for better quality lighting will increase dramatically,” explains presenter Joe Rey-Barreau. “There is much scientific evidence that the aging eye requires more specialized lighting, and in this webinar the focus will be on how to meet the demanding lighting needs of older individuals."

Participants will earn the following learning units:

AIA/CES LU (HSW) 1.0 Learning Unit


NKBA 0.1 CEU (self-reporting)
