Infants and toddlers explore the world through taste. So, they often put things in their mouths, even hazardous materials like lead paint chips. That's why lead poisoning is a serious problem among children under the age of 2.
Our community initiatives include:
- Spreading awareness about the dangers of lead poisoning through presentations
- Providing landlords with the funds they need to remove lead paint safely
- Providing test kits to preschools
Reach out today to access exclusive lead poisoning education resources for northern York County, ME area residents.
Everyone plays a part in childhood lead poisoning prevention.
