Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s Lighting for Health & Wellbeing newsletter for April 17, 2023. Today the annual Boston Marathon takes over in nearby Massachusetts and marks an unofficial passage into spring for New Englanders.

The marathon metaphor has been used time and again to describe the state of many processes, markets, and industries, but that won’t stop me! The opportunities for lighting to impact health and wellbeing — circadian lighting in particular — feel more like a marathon than a sprint. There are times when we see a bit of flagging and wonder if the race has already ended because the road was too rough. I think not. Next week when our April/May issue hits, you’ll gain more insight from circadian scientist Martin Moore-Ede about what is holding back large-scale circadian lighting development, and how the lighting industry can prepare for the hilly terrain it has yet to cover in terms of product and practical strategy — before policy takes over.
