What services do we provide?
The Bureau of Healthy Homes/Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP) provides a variety of resources to help educate their patients on the dangers of lead and other hazards, by providing lead screening, case management and environmental intervention to children who are lead burdened. Lead screening is provided for children 9 months thru 17 years who are uninsured or underinsured; since lead is everywhere in the environment, lead poisoning will continue to harm our children.
