CLEAR Program

The Childhood LEAD Education and Reduction (CLEAR) Program aims to minimize childhood lead poisoning by educating and creating awareness for families in San Diego County through our FREE lead poisoning presentations.

The accumulation of lead in a child’s body is known as childhood lead poisoning. The CLEAR program offers a FREE presentation to parents and caregivers (with children under six years of age) about the most common sources of lead, impact on health, how to identify lead poisoning in children and, most importantly, how to avoid it! Participants can also learn nutritional tips that help minimize lead absorption in case of exposure. Contact us to schedule your “Leaducation” class!
