Children’s goes beyond the basic blood tests and works with families to discover the source of the lead, to not only stop the exposure, but to protect others in the home or workplace.
Lead exposure affects nearly every system in the body. Children under age 6 are most at risk for long-term developmental damage. The Centers for Disease Control estimate that at least 4 million households have children living in them that are being exposed to high levels of lead. The Children’s team is here to help keep your kids and family safe.
