In Worchester, Pennsylvania, Heather Ford has traded 'rose colored glasses' in favor of yellow-colored safety glasses—especially since her investigation on the effects of blue light exposed a large amount of surprising research. She's a multi-level educator as well as an optometrist and she's made it her personal mission to inform her audience on the sources, effects, and safety precautions of lights emitting harmful blue light.
Heather is one of our published alumni. She's shared her learnings, her published article, and her journey through this spectrum for everyone's benefit. See what blue light is and why you should care.
In regards to teaching and the writing process for students, Heather says, "I find that the scientific writing process is becoming a lost art for many, and the best way to model for students the importance of writing is to do it yourself and share with them the journey."
