This webinar will provide background on the Flint, Michigan water crisis and other cases of impacted drinking water. It will also review the preventive efforts in place in New York and explore the initiatives being implemented to ensure that preschool and K-12 students are protected. Finally, it will provide guidance on how institutions serving children—public schools, child care centers, camps, after school programs and others—can prevent exposure of these vulnerable populations to elevated lead levels.
