Hi, my name is Kyle and this is my room.  If you greeted Dusty the dogs by petting him on the head and back then place your hand under my cool black light.  That stuff you see glowing on your hand could be lead dust the dog picked up in the dirt and brought into the house.  Lead poisoned my little sister and it could poison your child too.  Oh, and don’t worry, the dust on your hand is harmless, but I wanted you to see that real lead dust could be anywhere.

Panel 5
Dr. Gray
Hi, I’m Doctor Gray.  I’m glad you came to my office because I want to talk with you about how lead hurts young children.   If you have children who are one to six years old, you need to get them tested for lead.  Most kids get tested near their first birthday and again near their second birthday.  Your doctor will determine your child’s risk of lead poisoning based on your answers to a list of lead questions.  Our bodies do not need lead, but because lead is everywhere, we all have some in our blood and bones.  A child who is poisoned with lead may not show any obvious symptoms and yet it could result in permanent brain damage or even death.  Many children who have been lead poisoned have difficulty learning and getting along with other children.  As a result, lead poisoned children are seven times more likely to quit school than those that are not poisoned.  The good news is that you can find out if your child is poisoned with lead, but only if you get them tested regularly.  The test is simple, a sample of blood will be taken and tested for lead.  It is up to you to make sure your child gets tested.  Some doctors do the test in their office.  Others will send you to the lab where you can get them tested.  It’s very important to get your child tested as ordered by the doctor.
Panel 6
Nurse Rodriguez

Hi, I am Nurse Rodriguez.  There are many things you can do to reduce your children’s exposure to lead.  First, wash their hands frequently, especially before they eat.  A common way children get lead in their bodies is when lead dust gets on their hands and then they put their fingers in their mouth.  Second, learn to clean your home in a way that gets the lead dust up.  A damp dusting and wet mopping technique works best.  Just sweeping and vacuuming will not get the lead dust up it just spread’s it around.  Third, feed your children nutritious foods that are rich in iron and calcium, it may help prevent them from absorbing lead into their bodies.  Lead poisoning is preventable and there is a lot you can do to stop your child from getting poisoned.

Panel 7
Kyle

Hi, my name is Kyle and this is my room.  If you greeted Dusty the dogs by petting him on the head and back then place your hand under my cool black light.  That stuff you see glowing on your hand could be lead dust the dog picked up in the dirt and brought into the house.  Lead poisoned my little sister and it could poison your child too.  Oh, and don’t worry, the dust on your hand is harmless, but I wanted you to see that real lead dust could be anywhere.

A note from Gary:

I have worked with hundreds of agencies nationwide and everyone has their own purchasing system.  Generally, I create an invoice for you and you submit it to your purchasing or finance office.   Once they generate a Purchase Order (PO) number I will build and ship your exhibit.  Everything is included in the purchase price, a complete exhibit, shipping and your logo and text on the banner.

Panel 8

Each exhibit has a panel at the end that is an information rack.  It is an ideal place for you to put your site specific outreach and educatinal materials for the public to take home and read.

Now that they have been through the exhibit and have a better idea of what the issue is, they are more likely to read that material and gain further information specific to your area.
