Hunterdon County Health Department Recognizes National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week
The Hunterdon County Health Department is recognizing National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (NLPPW), October 24-30, 2021. NLPPW is an annual initiative sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to increase awareness of childhood lead poisoning prevention.  Lead poisoning can affect nearly every system in a child’s body, and lead poisoning is completely preventable despite the presence of lead in homes and the environment. 

Commissioner Shaun C. Van Doren, liaison for the Hunterdon County Health Department, said, “In 2021, Hunterdon County is reporting an increase in children testing positive for elevated blood lead levels or lead poisoning in Hunterdon County.

There is no safe level of lead in a person’s blood. Childhood exposure to lead may not show immediate or obvious symptoms but can affect long-term development and learning. Parents should be aware of possible sources of lead in their homes, prevent children from being exposed to those sources, and have their children tested for lead.”
