Our Staff

Our staff is responsible for the day-to-day implementation of all programs and activities. In addition to their commitment to eliminating lead poisoning, staff members bring diverse perspectives and skills to our efforts. All staff members receive guidance and oversight from our Executive Director, Roberta Hazen Aaronson.

Roberta founded the Childhood Lead Action Project, is a former social work professor, and has over 30 years of experience in public health advocacy. She is also a recipient of the Sister Carol McGovern "Voice for the Voiceless" Award, presented by the Fund for Community Progress in recognition of her dedication and outstanding work.
