Sept. 26: EPA’s lead workshop for communities
EPA Region 5 is hosting an introductory workshop for communities and their partners about lead poisoning prevention. The workshop will cover a range of tools, strategies, and resources to help eliminate lead poisoning. Speakers are expected to include federal, state, and local governments, community leaders, and non-governmental partners with experience in working to eliminate lead poisoning. The workshop will also include time for dialogue and networking to foster the exchange of ideas and support a growing community of practice in this important area of environmental and public health protection.
This workshop is intended as an introduction for community members interested in learning about lead poisoning prevention. We also welcome governmental agencies and non-profit organizations interested in learning about tools, strategies, and resources to help eliminate lead poisoning to attend. If your community or organization is interested in lead poisoning prevention, but has had limited experience with this work and would like to learn more, this workshop will introduce you to US EPA’s roles and resources and to the work of our governmental and external partners. If you already work on lead-related issues, this event may expand your familiarity with other resources and practitioners in the region. Read more.
