Expanding from Lead Poisoning Prevention to Healthy Homes

As state and local agencies expand from categorical lead poisoning prevention programs to more holistic healthy homes approaches, there is a need for models of success and innovation. They need to make this transition while maintaining their essential work to protect children from lead poisoning.

To facilitate this transition, NCHH held monthly conference calls for state and local lead poisoning prevention program staff and community-based organizations who work with them. The calls provided an opportunity to:

  • Identify models for successful transitions;
  • Learn about barriers and opportunities to success; and
  • Provide time for peer-to-peer trouble-shooting.
