Preventing lead poisoning

In addition to providing resources year round, we also participate in National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week each October. This week is a nationwide effort to increase awareness in reducing childhood exposure to lead.
Our efforts highlight three basic ways parents can reduce children's exposure to lead in their environment and prevent serious health effects. 
  • Know the facts.
  • Test your child.
  • Test your home.
We join the following agencies and countless other partners to provide resources and education to prevent lead poisoning.
