The Tennessee Alliance for Lead-safe Kids (TALK) is a HUD funded grant at Middle Tennessee State University that works to educate parents, child care and health care providers, and housing professionals about the dangers and prevention of childhood lead poisoning. The Centers for Disease Control estimate that approximately 250,000 U.S. children under the age of 6 have enough lead in their blood to cause action from public health agencies. Lead poisoning can permanently affect nearly every system in the body and can rob children of their potential.
But preventing childhood lead poisoning is easy! Please take the time to learn how you can protect the children in your life.
