Rebecca Morley, Executive Director of NCHH, Is Featured on the “Today” Show
NEW YORK (July 16, 2008) The Today show ran a segment on childhood lead poisoning and the importance of lead-safe renovation this morning featuring Rebecca Morley from the National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH).
The feature was inspired by outreach NCHH conducted on the EPA Renovation, Painting, and Repair (RRP) Rule but also deals more generally with the issue of childhood lead poisoning. We hope that this media coverage will alert families to the dangers of lead and make it clear that it is an ever-present and serious health concern.
