Our agency is participating in an important event on Friday that is worth your attention.
The Hamilton County Lead Poisoning Prevention Collaborative is hosting an event to educate the public about keeping children free of lead. Childhood lead poisoning remains a health risk for Cincinnati children despite being one of the most preventable environmental diseases among young children.
Lead poisoning can cause learning and developmental disabilities, attention deficit disorder, and in severe cases, seizures, unconsciousness and death.
Along with the educational aspects, the event will be fun for children, with food, games and prizes.
It runs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday at Building Value Re-Use Center, 4040 Spring Grove Ave.
