A three-part webinar series on lead and public health

March 16, 2015 | 1 p.m. EDT

Recent reports of elevated blood lead levels in children in Flint, Michigan, have brought national attention to the role of drinking water in lead exposure. Important questions are being raised about changes in drinking water chemistry, what can be done to control lead exposure through drinking water, and how local water utilities and the public health community can work together. Join APHA and the American Water Works Association for an interactive discussion about the current state of science related to the health risks posed by lead and the value of engaging the water systems sector.
Recordings of APHA webinars are made available after the live event. Register to recieve notifications.
