About the Series

The Lead Poisoning 2024 ECHO: Equipping Clinicians to Address Lead Exposure in Kansas Communities series is designed to provide primary care providers, pediatricians, community healthcare workers, and public health professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively engage families and educate them about the critical risks associated with lead poisoning. This comprehensive program features training led by public health experts and clinical specialists, supplemented by engaging, case-based learning. By participating in this series, healthcare professionals will graduate with a thorough understanding of potential sources of lead exposure, its impact on the human body, how to identify individuals at risk of lead poisoning and when to screen and test them, best practices in communicating the importance of lead testing, and how to collaborate with colleagues in medicine and public and community health to prevent lead exposure and testing issues.
