Time: 9:30am – 3:00pm
Location: Helen Wood Hall Auditorium, University of Rochester Medical Center, 255 Crittenden Blvd., Rochester, NY 14642
Event Details: In 2011, over 25,000 New York State children had blood lead levels at or above the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reference level of 5 ug/dL. These children are now in school. Are their teachers aware that they are at greater risk of having learning disabilities and behavior problems due to earlier lead exposure? Do schools and educators know which children have had lead exposure and how to help them succeed? In 2015, the CDC published Educational Interventions for Children Affected by Lead, an expert panel report that recommended that schools closely track the educational progress of these children. Our conference will focus on this report and what we can do to help lead-exposed children learn and reach their full potential in school and beyond. Cost $15/ per person, including lunch and parking.
