Childhood lead poisoning happens in Hawaiʻi and can cause lifelong health problems. The Hawaii State Department of Health’s Hawaii Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (HI-CLPPP) has extensive public health services to prevent childhood lead poisoning and to help families of children that have been exposed to lead.

HI Now host Rachel Pacarro discusses with Hawaiʻi Department of Health’s State Toxicologist, Dr. Diana Felton, more about HI-CLIPP and DOH’s efforts to reduce childhood lead poisoning.
