Healthy Homes Community Workshops and Trainings

The goal of the workshops and trainings is to educate you on environmental home health hazards with topics including lead poisoning prevention, how to control pests safely, how to prevent and get rid of bedbugs, and more. The community workshops target parents, caregivers, community residents or anyone interested. The trainings are for professionals working with families. If you have any questions, or to RSVP, please call (646) 632-6023 or email healthyhomes@health.nyc.gov. Organizations can also request onsite trainings and presentations (PDF) given by Healthy Homes Program educators and can order free educational materials (PDF).
