"It's a week designed to raise awareness about one of the most preventable childhood illnesses around," said City of Norwalk Health Educator Theresa Argondezzi. 

To increase awareness of childhood lead poisoning prevention, the Norwalk Health Department, along with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the US Environmental Protection Agency, and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development is participating in National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (NLPPW) this week (October 19-25). 

In observance of NLPPW, the Health Department is displaying information in the waiting room; launching an update to its lead poisoning prevention webpage (

In addition to its activities during NLPPW, the Health Department works year-round to help fight lead poisoning, by using trained and certified staff to conduct epidemiological investigations and lead inspections and by educating the community on ways they can prevent lead poisoning, especially in children 6 years of age and younger.
