Protecting Our Children From Home Health Hazards: Information for Primary Care Providers on Lead Poisoning and Asthma

WEBINAR: Thursday, May 8th 12:30pm—1:30pm EST

Presented by the Mid-Atlantic Center for Children’s Health and the Environment in collaboration with the National Nursing Centers Consortium. Supported by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Clinical Directors Network.

As young children spend around 90% of their time in the home, with much of that time in their bedrooms, it is important to ensure that children have a healthy and safe place to live. Primary care providers can play a critical role in identifying environmental hazards in the home that impact on a child’s health by asking about environmental exposures and counseling patients on steps they can take to create a healthy home. This webinar will discuss environmental hazards in the home, with an emphasis on lead poisoning and asthma.

This session is pending for 1.0 Prescribed credit through the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP). For the purposes of American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) certification and re-certification, participants may use these contact hours.
