Cleveland Museum of Natural History says
Taking the lead for a healthier tomorrow

Though lead poisoning has recently received increased media coverage, it remains an ongoing public health crisis locally and nationally. Commonly used in paint, plumbing, and other everyday items before 1978, doctors, scientists, and policy makers are now working together to stop exposure to lead and treat those already affected.

We are "Taking the Lead on Lead" on September 1, 2016. Join the conversation, learn more about lead poisoning, and find out how it may be affecting your community. We will discuss the lead crisis at a national and local level, and identify what needs to be done.

7-8pm: Speakers
Cleveland Perspective: Terry Allan, Health Commissioner, Cuyahoga County Board of Health
