Every year, hundreds of children in NH are poisoned by lead and experience blood lead levels (BLL) known to impair academic performance and cause behavior challenges. Once a child’s health or cognition has been harmed by lead, the effects can be permanent and continue into adulthood.

Join this luncheon education session to learn about:

  • The ‘Neurobehavioral Signature’ of lead— or lead’s significant negative impact on cognitive ability, speech and language, hearing, visual-spatial skills, attention, impulse control, social behaviors, emotional regulation, and motor skills— even at low levels of exposure

  • Recent NH legislation requiring BLL testing at ages 1 and 2 years

  • How to improve childhood lead poisoning prevention
  • Why some NH communities are requiring the results of BLL tests documented on school entry health forms and taking other initiatives to prevent lead exposure among their youngest citizens
