National Lead Awareness Week

October 20, 2018 - October 27, 2018

Here are some of the activities that state and local agencies are promoting in North Carolina:

  • “Preventing Lead Poisoning” online training module developed by the UNC CEHS Community Outreach and Engagement Core and the NC Institute for Public Health
  • Flyers from the NC DHHS Health Hazards Control Unit in English and in Spanish, with contact information, the HHCU website, and reminders about getting homes tested, getting children tested and using NC certified contractors to work on pre-1978 homes and child care centers.
  • Durham Town Hall Meeting on October 25
  • NC Affordable Housing Conference on October 24-25

We still welcome any information on lead-related programming that you’re conducting this week and beyond, since the Governor’s office has proclaimed October as NC Poisoning Prevention Month. Share the information with us ( or, and we’ll post it on the NC Healthy Homes website calendar and to the listserv.
