Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention

Text Size:

Medical Management

We maintain a computer database of blood lead test results to make sure that children with elevated lead levels receive proper medical attention and follow-up, including free house checks (environmental investigations) and education.

We also provide education and consultation to healthcare providers about screening and reporting requirements. Our social worker helps to connect families to other lead prevention services and related social service resources.
