This week is National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week.
Lead exposure can have several adverse effects on a child, including learning and behavioral problems, which can lead to underperformance in school. Educators and childcare providers are often among the first to notice when something is off with a child. Getting educated on how to spot the signs of potential childhood lead exposure is key to protecting children in our community.
