Lead Week Resources

Lead Week is a national, annual campaign during the last full week of October to bring awareness to and prevent childhood lead exposure. Everyone is encouraged to get involved with Lead Week by participating in events and sharing resources about preventing childhood lead poisoning. This page is dedicated to previous years' campaign resources. To learn more about lead poisoning and how to prevent exposure, visit CLPPB's Frequently Asked Questions and Lead Education Materials.


Theme: Even small amounts of lead can harm a child’s health. Ask your child’s doctor about a blood lead test.
