Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

A free pre­sen­ta­tion on the health haz­ards of lead poi­son­ing and ways that nu­tri­tion can help is sched­uled for 10 to 11 a.m. Oct. 26 at the Sho­pRite gro­cery store on Miron Lane.

The event is spon­sored by Ul­ster County Ex­ec­u­tive Michael Hein, the Ul­ster County Depart­ment of Health’s Child Lead Poi­son­ing Pri­mary Preven­tion Pro­gram and Sho­pRite.

Par­tic­i­pants will be given a guided tour of the gro­cery story and go home with a free bag of healthy foods.
