RICHARD HOBDAY, PhD., born in England, received his Ph.D. Degree from the School of Engineering, Cranfield University, England. As a Chartered Engineer, Richard has been responsible for a number of projects concerned with solar energy, energy efficiency and health in buildings.

Working alongside Architects on one particular project he became aware of a “lost” tradition of designing sunlit buildings to prevent disease, rather than to save energy, and became interested in the healing powers of sunlight. He began to study the history of Sunlight Therapy and found that the Physicians who practiced this ancient healing art called Heliotherapy, and the Architects who supported them in their work, used sunlight very differently from the way many of us do today.

Dr. Hobday has become a leading authority on the history and practice of Sunlight Therapy. He is the author of The Healing Sun: Sunlight and Health in the 21st Century, a very revealing book on the beneficial effects of sunlight on human health. He relates how sunlight can help prevent and heal many common diseases like breast, prostate and colon cancer, heart disease, multiple sclerosis and osteoporosis. He also describes how sunlight speeds up the healing of wounds and relieves stress. The book also has information on how to sunbathe safely and the importance of full spectrum light.

The light and heat from the sun are indispensable to all nature and large numbers of people may be compromising their health through sunlight deficiency.

Dr. Hobday will speak on The Healing Sun.
