New Hampshire health officials announced Monday the state has been awarded a $5 million federal grant to analyze efforts to reduce blood-lead levels in children and identify impacts from flooding on people’s health, as well as other projects.
The $5,162,497 million grant from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention grant will allow New Hampshire’s Public Health Laboratories (PHL) to enhance the state’s biomonitoring program. Biomonitoring is the direct measurement of environmental chemicals in people’s blood and urine, indicating the amount of chemicals that actually enters the body from all environmental sources.
