Health & Medicine is proud to be a co-sponsor of an upcoming event hosted by Loyola University Chicago
on health challenge of national and local significance: lead poisoning.
The recent lead crisis in Flint has raised public awareness of the problem of childhood lead poisoning in Chicago, and its devastating impact on children, families, and communities. Join government officials, advocates, researchers, physicians, community members, among others, for a public forum to discuss lead in Chicago and Cook County.
Issues to be discussed include:
-How extensive is the risk of children being lead poisoned?
-What are the sources of lead and their effects on children?
-How do the city and county currently respond?
-What remedies are available?
