Lead exposure is not limited to certain groups of children. Children can be exposed to lead from various sources in their environments—some more common than others. In this webinar, CDC subject matter experts will discuss the many ways children can be exposed to lead and share tangible ways families can protect children from the harmful effects of lead exposure.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about CDC’s efforts and strategies to increase blood lead testing among children.
This webinar broadcasted via Zoom.
