Lead and Healthy Homes Outreach Materials
Approximately two-thirds of U.S. families live in a home with at least one health hazard. This problem is compounded with most small children spending 70% of their day inside their homes.
The CEC works with the CEHS Cardiopulmonary Disease and Developmental Disease Research Focus Areas, as well as national and state health and housing agencies, to develop and provide trainings that inform professionals and the public about hazards that exist in homes.
Preventing Lead Poisoning Online Module
A 55-minute online training that provides an overview of the main sources of lead exposure and poisoning, testing recommendations for children, and prevention methods. Participants will be briefed on state and federal policies, such as the CDC Guidelines on Lead and Pregnancy, and other resources that will help them serve vulnerable populations.
In addition, the CEC partnered with Morehead Planetarium and Science Center to develop the curriculum for “Our Air, Our Water, Our Homes,” for the 2013 SciVentures summer camp. Participants in this week-long summer camp learned about the spread of contaminants in communities and homes and ways to prevent them through hands-on activities and experiences.
