About this Event

As part of our 50th anniversary celebration, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is kicking off a month-long observance of its progress in Children's Environmental Health.

In observance of Children's Environmental Health Month, each year National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (NLPPW) is a call to bring together individuals, community organizations, industry, and state and local governments to raise awareness of lead poisoning prevention and reduce childhood exposure to lead.

Childhood lead poisoning is still one of the most important health issues in the United States today. This year's NLPPW highlights five panelist for a virtual roundtable: Lead is still a Problem , featuring five technical experts:

  • Amy Roberts, RN, BSN - Program Manager, Healthy Homes and Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention, Kansas City, MO Health Department

  • Tammi Holmes, MPH, Healthy Homes Program - Supervisor, St. Louis County Department of Public Health
  • Naudia McCracken, Lead Program Supervisor (Acting), Douglas County, Nebraska Health Department
  • Crystal McIntyre, Regional Lead-Based Paint Program Coordinator, EPA Region 7
