COMMUNITY PROGRAMS GRANT SUPPORTS REPRINT OF HEALTHY HOME DVD

The Coalition to Prevent Lead Poisoning has announced the arrival of 1,600 new copies of Healthy Home: Environmental Health Hazards—a DVD that combines CPLP’s Lead Awareness for Parents and the Rochester Healthy Home Partnership’s Healthy Home.
This re-issue was funded entirely by a generous grant from the New York State Pollution Prevention Institute Community Grants Program. The NYP2I Community Grants Program provides support for projects that raise awareness and under-standing and lead to implementation of pollution prevention practices and/or behaviors at the local level with the goal of improving the health, environmental quality, and economic vitality of New York State communities.
Healthy Home is an innovative and engaging series of seven informational segments, 3-4 minutes in length, on air quality, asbestos, chemicals, housekeeping, lead, mold, and pests.
Told from the point of view of two mothers of lead-poisoned children, Lead Awareness for Parents is a 10-minute concise educational tool (viewable in English, Spanish, and American Sign Language) that provides immediate access to information about lead poisoning prevention, steps parents can take to reduce their family’s exposure to lead, and information about additional local and national resources.
Call (585) 224-3125 to request your free copies! You can find all of the DVD chapters on YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0HnWFrQlo4.
