Breaking News » MI Child Lead Exposure Elimination Commission Hosting Community Forums to Gather Feedback on Action Plan - LANSING, Mich. – To gather feedback on a plan to create a lead-free Michigan, a series of public forums are being hosted by the state’s Child Lead Exposure Elimination Commission (CLEEC) in May and June. The CLEEC's five-year Action Plan builds upon the work of the former Child Lead Poisoning Elimination Board with 51 specific action steps to be taken to benefit the health of Michigan’s children. The action plan places a priority on the prevention of exposure before children are lead poisoned. Federal, state, local and community leaders, healthcare providers, private sector/academic experts, privacy law experts, local health departments, childcare centers and homeowners and tenants are invited to attend any of the forums to provide input on the next steps for implementation. “We are hoping to gather feedback from a wide variety of individuals on how to move forward,” said Dr. Eden Wells, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services chief medical executive and CLEEC chair. “The action plan is the state’s guide to a state free of lead exposure and I look forward to seeing the results it brings to fruition.” Forums are being offered: • Thursday, May 31, 3 – 5:30 p.m. and 6 – 8:30 p.m. at the Kent County Health Department, 700 Fuller Avenue, Grand Rapids. • Wednesday, June 13, 2:30 – 5 p.m. at the Jackson County Health Department, 1715 Lansing Avenue, Jackson. • Monday, June 25, 6 – 8 p.m. at the Wayne County Community College’s Downtown Campus, 1001 West Fort Street, Detroit. • Wednesday, July 18, 4 – 6:30 p.m. at the Grand Traverse County Health Department, 2600 Lafranier Road, Traverse City. Additional forums may be scheduled in other areas of the state. For a full listing of forums, visit Download the flyer here (PDF).
