LPP Membership

As directed by the June 14, 2019, Executive Order on Evaluating and Improving the Utility of Federal Advisory Committees (EO 13875), CDC has ended the term of this committee. The information on this page is no longer being updated.

The LPP Subcommittee provides ongoing expertise in the areas of laws, regulations, compliance and enforcement, policy and guidance, and analysis in lead poisoning prevention which the membership of the BSC does not possess. The subcommittee is comprised of experts in the fields of lead screening (including pediatric, older children and adult populations, in some cases); diagnosis, medical management and preventive medicine; environmental lead hazard detection, reduction and prevention; laboratory issues; surveillance, epidemiology and risk assessment; and occupational lead exposure. The subcommittee reviews and comments on the growing understanding of how the frequency and duration of lead exposures affect health and cognitive outcomes.
