Each year, National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (NLPPW) is a call to bring together
individuals, organizations, industry, and state, tribal, and local governments to increase
lead poisoning prevention awareness in an effort to reduce childhood exposure to lead.
NLPPW highlights the many ways parents can reduce children’s exposure to lead in their environment and prevent its serious health effects. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and our partners work to heighten awareness of lead poisoning, provide resources, and encourage preventive actions during NLPPW and beyond.
“In a five-month period — from March through July — lead testing was performed on just over 32,000 children in Michigan. That’s half the number of children tested when compared to the same months in previous years.”
Governor Gretchen Whitmer has signed a proclamation claiming October 8th as Children’s Environmental Health Day.
