Lead Convening Event
In this virtual session, we will build upon the discussion from our 2019 “Lead Poisoning in CNY” event. Precious time has passed for families who are enduring lead poisoning and now, with the addition of the pandemic, many government, medical and nonprofit organizations are still preoccupied with COVID-19. With two panels featuring government, medical and neighborhood experts, we will cover the progress that has been made over in medical testing and code enforcement, as well as the challenges Central New York may face moving forward.

By presenting this event, we hope to:

Identify outstanding issues and obstacles
Inform government representatives, funders and others of the current state of affairs
Re-establish momentum
Build renewed awareness
Form alliances
