No child should ever be poisoned by lead since lead exposure is completely preventable. According to a 12/7/20 News5Cleveland.com report, in 2019, 2% of Ohio children tested had high lead levels, and that number jumped to nearly 6% in Cuyahoga County and in Cleveland it is even higher at 8.6%. The Lead Safe Cleveland Coalition is a public-private partnership formed to address the issue of lead poisoning in our community. The coalition is made up of over 400 members, 120 organizations, state and local government, and families impacted by lead. Speakers for this webinar will provide an overview of the coalition’s mitigation strategies, including available education and resources, along with regional efforts for improving lead testing rates and follow up referrals for children who may be at high risk for lead exposure.
Please join us for this informative webinar and learn how Better Health Partnership’s Children’s Health Initiative, led by Northeast Ohio’s primary care and health and human service providers are contributing to this important initiative to elevate children’s health in our community.
Speakers include Wyonette Cheairs. Donald Ford MD, Chris Mundorf PhD, Chantal Tademy, Matthew Tien MD.
