Building the Way to a Healthier Future Virtual Release

Join us on October 13th from 10:30-11:30 a.m. as we release a comprehensive and groundbreaking report on lead poisoning prevention titled, “Building the Way to a Healthier Future: Investigating a Path Forward to Ensure Ohio’s Youngest Children are Safe from Lead Paint Hazards in Child Care Settings.” This report details the child lead exposure in Ohio, the state’s current lead prevention policies and strategies for child care programs, a nationwide scan of lead prevention regulations in child care facilities, and policy recommendations on how the state can involve child care providers in primary prevention efforts.  During the event, we will provide a high-level overview of the report followed by a panel discussion on child lead poisoning prevention featuring:

  • Gabriella Celeste, Ohio Lead Free Kids Coalition

  • Wyonette Cheairs, Lead Safe Cleveland Coalition

  • Ami Cole, Molina Healthcare

  • Katie Kelly, PRE4CLE

The discussion will be facilitated by Lynanne Gutierrez, Assistant Director and Legal Counsel of Groundwork Ohio. We hope you will join us in this important conversation to learn more about how to prevent our most vulnerable from becoming lead poisoned.
