Lead poisoning remains a significant public health concern, particularly for children. It is vital that medical professionals are equipped with the latest knowledge and strategies to effectively diagnose, treat, and prevent this condition.

This event is primarily designed for doctors, but clinical staff and office managers representing their medical offices are also encouraged to attend.

The Health Department stresses the importance of a team approach in tackling lead poisoning, making it essential for all members of a healthcare practice to be informed and prepared.

“We are committed to ensuring that our community’s medical providers have access to the best information and resources available,” said Christie Ladd, program manager for Child Health Services. “By educating our healthcare professionals about the dangers and management of lead poisoning, we are taking a significant step towards safeguarding the health and well-being of our children.”
