Maternal and Child Health
Lead Poisoning Prevention Program
With the Title X law in effect, the involvement of the Federal Government and the United States Environmental Protection Agency, our population of lead poisoned children in Rock Island County should decrease. The educational brochure from the U.S. EPA is to be given by landlord to all tenants. The brochure has very informative basic education on the prevention of lead poisoning in children. It is something all families should read, as lead is found everywhere in our environment.
We continue to screen children, do follow-ups, case manage children with elevated blood lead levels, complete public health nurse inspections and provide community education.
