LEAD WEBINARS 6th and 19th of January 2022
Lead is still a problem in the world. Most specifically for children. How can we make more progress in solving this problem? What are the most urgent interventions? How can we cooperate?
INCHES works in official collaboration with WHO. One of the collaborative tasks is to organize a webinar on lead exposure and children. The aim of this webinar is to discuss the most recent findings of lead exposure (monitoring, identification methods), the level of health effects in children (related to different forms of exposure) and the way forward to reduce this global problem. Last October the International Lead Poisoning Prevention Week was held. We would like to consider some of the highlights of this week in conjunction with the latest scientific progress.
We are cordially inviting you to participate in the webinar.
We start with several presentations on lead and health problems in children. Each presentation will be short between 5 -8 minutes presentation. See the next page for the program.
The second part of the webinar is an open discussion to discuss the needs and possibilities to tackle lead exposure health problems in children around the world. This will be done in interactive groups.
We are scheduling this webinar online. We have options for 2 dates: 6 January 2022. We have a reserve date on 19th of January if we have an overflow of participants or enough people who cannot join on the 6th of January. Both at 15.00 – 16.30 hrs. CET (Amsterdam time).
There is no registration fee. You can register for the 6th already now by sending a reply email to info @inchesnetwork.net. You will receive a reply email with a zoom link for the event.
You may forward this invitation to other interested parties.
We still have a few presenting slots for the second webinar on the 19th of January.
Thank you very much for your cooperation. Lead poisoning is still a big problem. Prevent children getting sick.
