In order to increase testing, reporting, and follow-up care for child and maternal lead poisoning we provide strategies to educate and work with pediatricians, clinics, care coordinators, and other providers.
We provide solutions for educating and training homeowners, renters, contractors and others working in the housing sector on lead poisoning prevention and to strengthen lead-related housing policies.
We ensure the safety of children by educating and working with schools, daycare centers, and other childcare programs on the need for lead testing and prevention, and to create policies for lead-safe environments.
We can address lead poisoning in the most impacted communities by working with community leaders and organizations to emphasize the need for lead poisoning assessments and prevention.
We can address the prevalence of lead in workplaces and consumer goods by calling attention to this issue and advancing opportunities with industry partners.
Having the highest possible impact on the highest need is only possible through intentional engagement, partnership and outreach with families and their respective communities.
