DataSpark: Working to Reduce Lead Poisoning in Providence
NNIP partners all share an understanding of how neighborhoods create opportunities and challenges for residents. The effects of housing and neighborhood conditions on health outcomes are illustrations of why traditionally siloed issue areas must be examined together and why cross-sector work is essential to the improvement of low-income neighborhoods.
This presentation was part of the “Connecting Health, Neighborhoods, and Housing” session at the NNIP October 2015 partners meeting. Joel Stewart presents the Providence Plan experience in educating communities about the risks of lead poisoning to child wellbeing.
