5th Annual MIALSH Lead Education Day Success!

Thank you to everyone who braved the weather and joined us for our 5th annual MIALSH Lead Education Day.  It was a smashing success thanks to you!

While it was a very snowy day, advocates to end lead poisoning in Michigan traveled in from Ann Arbor, Flint, Grand Rapids, Detroit, Lansing, Jackson, Clarkston, South Lyon, Commerce Township and many other parts of the state to talk about lead education.  We visited over 70 legislative offices and had 72 attendees RSVP for the day.

Legislators and staff appreciated our visits and the information we shared about lead poisoning prevention and best practices.  Many were surprised to learn how big of an issue lead is in their districts and how many facets there are to lead poisoning.  Our coalition is full of intelligent, well spoken and passionate messengers and together we do make a difference.

We also had fun! Check out our Facebook page for a photo album from the day.

See you next year!
