2020 Lead Poisoning Prevention (LPP) Week is October 25-31
This is a prime opportunity to educate the people in your communities on how to prevent lead poisoning.
- Use these easy-to-implement ideas in the LPP Week toolkit P-00554-20 (PDF)—post social media messages, customize a local press release, or add a LPP virtual background to your virtual meetings.
- Enroll your home built before 1978 in the Lead Safe Homes Program, or share the program information with others, to reduce lead hazards in older housing.
- Review national LPP Week resources form partner websites: the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the US Environmental Protection Agency, and the US Housing and Urban Development.
