Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Prevention National Training Center (HHLPPTC)
The CDC-funded Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Prevention Training Center (HHLPPTC) supports CDC’s partners in state and local programs by training new program personnel in practical strategies to build programs, develop strategic coalitions, improve care coordination, and support housing-based primary prevention.
The Center is offering two free 3-1/2 day trainings in 2017:

These trainings focus on implementing practical strategies to build programs, conduct housing-based primary prevention, develop and maintain strategic partnerships, and improve linkage to care. The trainings are primarily targeted to childhood lead poisoning prevention staff from state and local health departments, and related private sector organizations.
