OPDD and University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey – School of Osteopathic Medicine (UMDNJ-SOM) partnership programs:
Train the TrainerTrain the Trainer educates staff of community groups throughout the state about lead poisoning and other prevention issues. It emphasizes effective communication skills.
The intent of this project is to develop a network of trainers who can provide effective prevention education in their community. The program provides materials and technical support to these “community educators.”
Child Health and Injury Prevention Program (CHIPP)The Child Health and Injury Prevention Program (CHIPP) aims to educate staff of preschool programs, young children and their families about health and prevention issues. Teachers participate in an on-site educational program on specific issues, such as lead poisoning prevention, healthy nutrition and childhood injuries. After the teacher education, an OPDD Community Educator returns in the CHIPP Mobile to educate the children about these issues.
