The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) will support state, county, and Tribal representatives from rural and non-urban communities to convene and discuss how collaborative efforts can be initiated or strengthened to identify and address elevated blood lead levels (BLLs) in Tribal children.

At the convenings, key stakeholders will work to generate region-specific solutions to enhance BLL testing and related activities. Tribal participants will gain an improved understanding of how state and county lead programs might work with Tribal Nations, what resources and materials may be available, and potential opportunities for future Tribal-state and Tribal-county partnerships to accomplish this work.


Participants will include tribal representatives from rural and non-urban communities. NIHB will focus energies on two Indian Health Service regions, based on expressed interest from elected Tribal leaders, and Tribal programmatic and clinical staff who work in lead.
