The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency invites anyone interested in learning more about lead and protecting children to join us for a 90-minute webinar to learn about lead using Module 1: Understanding Lead of the Lead Awareness Curriculum.

Module 1: Understanding Lead provides an overview of lead, its impacts and actions that can be taken to reduce potential lead exposure and lead poisoning. This module is developed to ensure that attendees understand the seriousness of lead exposure and steps to prevent lead poisoning. By the end of Module 1, participants will: recognize potential sources of lead exposure; understand impacts and effects of lead exposure; learn simple actions to reduce lead exposure; and know the importance of testing children’s blood lead levels.

The webinar will start with a general introduction to the topic of lead and the “Actions to Reduce Potential Lead Exposure Infographic" (shown below) and then discuss potential sources of lead exposure. Next, we will discuss that while all humans may potentially be exposed to lead, certain groups are more vulnerable than others, as well as the health effects of lead. This will then lead into a discussion of various actions you can do at home to reduce your family’s potential exposure to lead. We will end the webinar with time for questions from participants.
