Unhealthy Homes: Challenges and Promising Interventions in Northeast Ohio
Presenter: Kim Foreman, Executive Director, Environmental Health Watch
Exposure to lead, mold, pests and other allergens pose acute and lifelong health-related consequences for families and children, who are especially vulnerable. Even low levels of lead exposure affect children's brain development; high levels can be deadly. Asthma is especially prevalent in children and a leading cause of school absences and Emergency Department visits.
