Peer Education for Lead Safety
The Healthy Homes Coalition trains volunteers from the community to teach others abour lead poisoning, how to identify risks in the home, and strategies for protecting children. We call this our Peer Education program. Think of it as parents teaching other parents about lead safety, although some of our educators are grand parents, neighbors, or simply those interested in helping othr protect thier children from lead.
