Church of the Saviour hosts talk on lead exposure dangers
Anyone following the news out of Flint, Mich., or Sebring, Ohio, knows that lead poisoning is serious business.
Exposure to lead is especially dangerous for young children and pregnant women, and, here in the Heights, we have many old homes with old pipes.
On March 16, at 7:30 p.m., Dorr Dearborn, M.D., will discuss the current status of lead issues and lead poisoning in the Heights and in Greater Cleveland. The talk will take place at Church of the Saviour, Calvary Hall, 2537 Lee Road.
Dearborn has done research and treated children with lead poisoning, and is active in getting children screened for lead exposure.
All members of the community are welcome to attend. For more information, call the church office at 216-321-8880 during normal business hours.
Connie Crihfield is a member of Church of the Saviour's Health Ministry Team.
