Flint and Lead: The Water-Public Health Connection

Flint and Lead: The Water-Public Health Connection

This On-Demand webinar discusses the current state of science related to the health risks posed by lead and the value of engaging the water systems sector. 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.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 1 PDH credit.
