Impact Talk: Using Data as a Social Justice Tool for Addressing Lead Poisoning in Cleveland

    Wednesday, March 30, 2022 at 12:30 PM until 1:30 PMEastern Daylight Time

    Data can play an important role in policy development to bring about social change. In Cleveland, a major initiative is now underway to remove the persistent threat to children from lead poisoning, especially in rental housing. Research done at the Mandel School has been influential in informing this initiative and evaluating its success during implementation. This talk will explore how data have played a role in partners’ understanding of the risks of lead, its ties to longstanding disinvestment and discrimination, and how best to intervene in the low-cost rental housing market to protect children. 

    You're invited to join the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences for our Impact Talks series with Dr. Robert L. Fischer, co-director of the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development, chair of the Master of Nonprofit Organizations program, and associate professor on Wednesday, March 30, from 12:30–1:30 p.m. EST.
