Lead in Paint, Lead in Water, Are we doing all we oughtta?

Thursday, October 27, 2016 - 7:00pm
Joe Schirmer will discuss data on environmental lead exposure, where it comes from and what we can do about it.  Joe worked in Wisconsin’s lead poisoning prevention program until 2015, has decades of experience (1) evaluating lead exposure risks in dwellings as an inspector and risk assessor and (2) developing and evaluating programs to reduce lead exposure in children. He will discuss the historical legacy of lead in the environment, from gasoline, paint and plumbing (plumbous is Latin for lead) and what we can do about these sources of lead.
