From October 5th to 8th, the 2015 Lead and Healthy Housing Mid-Year Conference was held in sunny New Orleans. Sponsored in part by the Lead and Environmental Hazards Association (LEHA), the conference featured speakers such as the Louisiana Secretary for the Department of Health and Hospitals Kathy Kliebert. Alpine’s Ron Peik (also President of LEHA) and Ryan DeMoura attended the conference with Ron delivering the opening remarks.

Topics at the event included creating a clean, safe indoor environment, collaborating with diversified groups to bring about program support and to result in increasing screening for lead poisoning, and updates on the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) program. These conferences are a great way to stay up to date on the industry as well as to build a network of essential connections.
