Public Health Grand Rounds: Prevent Childhood Lead Exposure
February 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The February 2019 Public Health Grand Rounds from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) focuses on childhood lead exposure.
Over the past 40 years, exposure to lead has declined in the U.S. However, millions are still being exposed in their homes and environment. Lead exposure can seriously harm a child’s health and there is no safe blood lead level in children. Yet more than 500,000 U.S. children have elevated blood lead levels.
