Childhood Lead Prevention
Children are at greater risk than adults for lead poisoning. Lead poisoning can cause permanent damage to a child’s brain, kidneys, and other organs. Exposure can lead to behavior problems, increased aggression and learning difficulties.
All children one to six years of age, particularly those less than 3years of age, are at risk for lead exposure due to frequent hand-to-mouth contact.
What services are available?
A blood lead test is available and the only way to know if your child has been exposed to lead. Screening children for lead poisoning is very important.
Who is eligible?
Uninsured children one to six years of age
