WASHINGTON (Oct. 1, 2019) — In support of Children’s Health Month 2019, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler participated in the Mid-Atlantic Lead Forum, held in Hunt Valley, Maryland, to tout the agency’s successes with regard to the Trump Administration’s Federal Action Plan to Reduce Childhood Lead Exposures and Associated Health Impacts (released in December 2018). The forum convened local and state, academic, and non-profit partners from the Mid-Atlantic region (EPA’s Region 3), allowing federal agencies to continue the discussion about strategies to reduce childhood lead exposures and providing an opportunity for stakeholders to begin developing their own community lead reduction action plans.
