Name of Session:
Childhood Lead Poisoning: Will We Meet the 2010 Goal?
Description of Session
The nation has established a goal of eliminating childhood lead
poisoning as a major public health threat by 2010. This session explores the
prospects of meeting that goal and what additional actions are needed. Specific
topics to be covered include:
- the latest nationwide prevalence estimates;
- model code enforcement program for lead paint hazards;
- validation of childhood lead poisoning trends from 1990–2010, using housing demolition and rehab data and associated new cost and benefit estimates;
- new evidence of the association between lead poisoning, crime and other anti-social behaviors;
- non-housing sources of lead exposure and implications for case management;
- how a window replacement effort can achieve multiple but still largely unrecognized benefits of helping to control lead poisoning, reduce energy costs, improve property value, and achieve better air quality; and
- case management practices.
This session will conclude with observations on what it will take to make the 2010 goal truly achievable.
