Flint and Lead: The Water/Public Health Connection
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.
Presenters: Susan Buchanan, MD, MPH, Stephen J. Randtke, PhD, PE, Ella Greene-Moton, and Melissa Essex Elliott
1 CPH continuing education credit is available for this webinar. This is the first in a three-part series on lead exposure and public health.
