IES to Perform a Thorough and Reasoned Review of the AMA Report

On June 14, 2016, the American Medical Association (AMA) announced its adoption of recommendations contained in CSAPH Report 2-A-16 entitled “Human and Environmental Effects of Light Emitting Diode (LED) Community Lighting.” This report was approved as part of the AMA’s Council on Science and Public Health (CSPAH) proceedings. The IES was not consulted in this process. Of primary concern to the IES is the potential for this report and its ensuing press to misinform the public with incomplete or inaccurate claims and improper interpretations. We intend to respond to this through a proper analysis. We are working with a group of researchers familiar with these issues, representing different institutions and areas of practice, to review the AMA report. http://ies.org/emails/2016/june/ama-response.html
