Lead Poisoning Prevention Week

by AdministratorOctober/20/2014

Did you know October 19-25th is National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week? Long-term exposure to lead can cause serious health problems from lead poisoning. Each year in the United States over 300,000 children ages 1 to 5 are discovered to have unsafe levels of lead in their blood. Throughout this week, NHS of Greater Cleveland has a table set-up with all sorts of informational materials, so, feel free to stop by our offices located at 5700 Broadway from 8:30am - 5pm.

Cleveland Department of Public Health, Lead Safe Living, and Healthy Cleveland are putting on free lead screenings for children ages 6 and under all around Cleveland. Lead poisoning is serious! Please take advantage of these free screenings! On Saturday, October 25th a Lead Poisoning Prevention Conference will take place from 9 am - 3 pm at 1201 Lakeside Avenue, with additional free lead screenings from 3:30 pm - 6 pm.
