Resource fair to help reduce lead exposure in Benton Harbor December 16
BENTON HARBOR, Mich. – City of Benton Harbor residents are invited to a resource fair on December 16 to learn more about lead exposure and how to reduce it.
The event will run from 4 to 7 p.m. at Benton Harbor High School.
Residents can also pick up free bottled water at the event.
This is the second resource fair for the city.
“Based on the success of the first Resource Fair, we want to provide another opportunity for residents to ask questions about the health effects of lead, how to get tested for lead and steps they can take to reduce or eliminate lead exposure in their homes and lives,” said Elizabeth Hertel, MDHHS director. “Information about services available to remove lead from homes, food assistance and other resources also will be available.”
