New Coalition Aims To Make Cleveland "Lead Safe"; Electronic Addiction

A coalition of Cleveland's healthcare, environmental, education and philanthropic organzations have announced an effort to work together to drastically reduce the number of children exposed to toxic lead over the next decade.  The Lead Safe Cleveland Coalition is the latest effort to try to protect Cleveland's children from the impact of lead exposure.     We'll discus the scope and aim of this latest coalition as well as a new study that looks at the long-ranging impact of lead exposure on the city's children. Later, we'll discuss another issue facing children: electronic addiction.
