June is National Healthy Homes Month
This year's theme is "Growing Up Safe and Healthy: 5 Minutes to a Healthy Home!"  As we head into summer, take 5 minutes to assess if you have a safe home for your children and those living in your home. You could potentially be exposing them to lead poisoning, allergens, carbon monoxide, and other hazards.
