In recognition of the serious human and economic consequences of lead poisoning, the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland is convening a forum on the topic November 18, 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio. The event will highlight what we know about the impacts of lead exposure on human capital, the societal and economic costs associated with exposure, and approaches and policies that have shown success in other places in addressing the causes and effects of lead poisoning. Our goal is to raise the importance and urgency of this issue in our community in a way that will reach a broader audience and lead to future action. We will end the day discussing what is needed to keep this critical issue at the forefront of our public discussion regarding programmatic and policy priorities.
