Flint and Lead: The Water-Public Health Connection
This course is a recorded webinar and is timed and monitored to be compliant with the Ohio Engineers and Surveyors Board requirements.
Reports of elevated blood lead levels in children in Flint, Michigan, placed a national spotlight on the role of drinking water in lead exposure. As the events continue to evolve, 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.
This recorded webinar discusses the current state of science related to the health risks posed by lead and the value of engaging the water systems sector.
