National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week Webinars

Welcome!
Each year, the National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (NLPPW) outreach campaign is aimed at awareness, action, and prevention. We bring together individuals, diverse organizations, industry, and state, tribal, and local governments nationwide. NLPPW is held this year from October 25‐31, 2020. NLPPW highlights the many ways parents can reduce children’s exposure to lead in their environment and prevent its serious health effects. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and our partners work to heighten awareness of lead poisoning, provide resources, and encourage preventive actions during NLPPW and beyond.
We thank our presenters for their hard work, support of and presentations during NLPPW. The target audiences for our webinars are a wide spectrum of professionals, who we hope will join us, ask questions, and most importantly, benefit.
More information can be found at https://www.hud.gov/program_offices/healthy_homes/nlppw The support of our partners helps us reach target audiences and broadens the range of techniques for
educating families and individuals.
