 Audience: Physicians, APRNs, PAs, RNs, LPNs, MAs

Description: Each year, over 650 children in New Hampshire are poisoned by lead and experience blood lead levels known to impair academic performance and cause behavior challenges. Lead exposure has a significant negative impact on cognitive ability, speech, and language, hearing, visual-spatial skills, attention, impulse control, social behaviors, emotional regulation, and motor skills. Children with lead exposure cannot avoid the negative impact and once a child’s health or cognition has been harmed by lead, the effects can be permanent and continue into adulthood. 

Presented by: Gail Gettens, MS, ECMP Health Promotion Advisor and Child Development Specialist

Upon completion of the training, attendees will be able to: 

  • Identify key outcomes from the Cincinnati Lead Study
  • Review regional lead exposure and testing surveillance data 
  • Describe legislation impacting pediatric health providers 
  • Discuss NH's low pediatric blood lead level testing rates
