This presentation is meant to provide an overview of lead, potential sources of exposure in Idaho communities, and the impacts/effects of lead exposure with a focus on children’s health. We will discuss simple actions that can be taken to reduce potential lead exposure and lead poisoning, and the importance of testing children’s blood lead levels. This presentation was developed using the Lead Awareness in Indian Country: Keeping our Children Healthy! curriculum available at https://www.epa.gov/lead/tribal-lead-curriculum
