Children's Environmental Health: Lead Prevalence, Prevention and Evaluation
While there have been important advances in reducing exposures to lead, this preventable disease continues to seriously affect many children across the United States. These poster sessions highlight state of the art approaches to identifying lead hazards, effective prevention strategies, and the actual at risk children who might have high blood lead levels.
Learning Objectives: 1. Learn about new technologies and programs to identify communtities and individuals with potential lead problems. 2. Develop community based programs to reach children with potential elevated blood lead levels. 3. Outline public and private sector approaches to lead issues.
