​Best Practices For Lead Poisoning Prevention And Treatment

The Maryland Department of Health(MDH) and The Green & Healthy Initiative (GHHI) have released two new videos on best practices for lead poisoning prevention and treatment. The videos are both targeted to specific audiences: one video provides information and resources to parents of young children, while the other focuses on providers and health professionals in Maryland. 

The videos feature parents, providers, and community partners from around the state, and are designed to raise awareness of the updated lead screening and testing guidelines in Maryland. Health and Mental Hygiene strengthened these guidelines in March 2016 to gather additional data on the changing profile of lead poisoning in the state.
