The most common exposure to lead is in paint in homes built prior to 1978, however, aging infrastructure has uncovered other potential dangers. The Maternal and Child Environmental Health Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (MCEH CoIIN) is a platform to expedite improvements in priority areas through collaborative learning, quality improvement and innovation. The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) is uniquely qualified for this partnership as environmental health professionals have expert knowledge and practice in environmental contamination effects on human health. In a panel discussion NEHA will address innovative partnerships between Public and Environmental Health to reduce the number of children and mothers exposed to harmful lead. This panel will discuss current systems, challenges, opportunities for growth, and identification of successes.
