Who We Are

Nevada Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program

The Nevada Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (NvCLPPP) aims to eliminate one of the most preventable environmental outcomes in children – lead poisoning. The Health Education Specialist aims to revitalize support for childhood lead poisoning prevention activities in Northern Nevada by strengthening:

  • Blood lead testing in children under six
  • Surveillance of children screened for lead in their blood
  • Population-based interventions for lead
  • Processes to identify lead-exposed children and link them to services

What We Do

Education and Outreach

The Health Education Specialist at Nevada Public Health Foundation provides Northern Nevada residents with educational and outreach materials, trainings and presentations to support the goals and objectives of NvCLPPP. We are working to raise awareness about the health risks of lead in order to prevent exposure and to encourage families to have their children tested for lead.

To request materials and resources, or to schedule a presentation please contact Lauren Raack by email at lauren@nphf.org or call (775) 884-0392.
