Event Details

Nazlie Latefi, Senior Research Associate at Pegasus Capital Advisors, will leadus on a scientific journey of bold entrepreneurship into healthier living with light.Sr. Research Associate

She will challenge Philadelphia entrepreneurs, building owners, designers, and physicians to consider new choices for healthier living.  Chronic sleep disorders linked to hypertension, cancer, heart disease, stroke, depression, diabetes, and other diseases currently affect 50-70 million Americans. 

According to a recent study in the British Medical Journal, 6-10% of Americans took a prescription sleeping pill in 2010. Alarmingly, the study also found that those taking sleep medication were 3-5 times more likely to die in a two and half year time frame than non-users. 

Most electric lighting exposes us to cyclically inappropriate light, not as nature intended.  Understanding the biological ramifications of light as well as the technological limitations of various energy saving technologies can have profound public health outcomes.

Natalie will discuss the lighting technology that will be on view during the 2013 GreenBuild International Convention & Expo at the Philadelphia Convention Center.

 You're sure to enjoy an evening of lively discussion and networking.
