Goal Guiding Principles Committees Membership LeadWatch Support

The Coalition does its work through its volunteer committees.

bullet

The Housing Committee develops and disseminates information about the community’s housing stock – where lead hazards are found, how lead is identified, best practices in making housing lead safe, resources for housing owners and residents.

bullet

The Health Care Provider Outreach Committee works to inform physicians and parents about lead and the appropriate testing of children at 12 and 24 months.  Early identification cannot reverse brain damage, but it can alert parents to the need to find and eliminate the source of the lead so that the damage does not escalate.

The Science  Committee monitors the latest research about lead poisoning and ensures that all members of the Coalition have a sound scientific basis for the conclusions that we reach and the actions that we advocate.

The Government Relations Committee translates the work of the other committees into actionable legislative and regulatory initiatives and provides legal and legislative insight to Coalition discussions.  This Committee generates support for our cause among all levels of government.

The Community Outreach Committee reaches out to civic, social, and professional organizations to raise awareness of both the problem and the solution to childhood lead poisoning.
