Given the recent lead crisis in Flint, Michigan, questions have arisen regarding the governmental environmental health system. One question that may not be asked frequently is the role of the public health laboratory. How do public health laboratories test for lead in drinking water and in people? What resources are available for emergency response? What is the role of the laboratory in crisis communications and media relations in a public health emergency? This webinar for environmental health professionals and the public will answer these questions and more.

At the conclusion of this program, the participant will be able to:

  • Discuss how public health laboratories test for lead in drinking water and people
  • Discuss public health laboratory emergency response resources and communications
