Identifying Lead Abatement Needs for Improved Health Outcomes
With a wide variety of symptoms and sources, lead poisoning can be hard to identify, particularly among children. However, understanding and managing risk of exposure to lead is now possible, neighborhood by neighborhood.
Concerned residents, public health officials, and local organizations can now proactively identify areas at risk of high lead exposure to target lead detection and abatement efforts.
