Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP)

The goal of the CLPPP is to prevent lead poisoning in children by pro-active action to educate the public regarding the hazards of lead poisoning, and to provide a comprehensive response to support lead burdened children, their families and the community.

The CLPPP outreach and education activities include: assembling quarterly Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Task Force meetings, working with Children's Health and Disability Prevention program providers to increase the number of children screened for lead poisoning, providing outreach information at local health fairs, and providing education to high-risk groups.

 

The public health nurse acts as a case manager to assist families of physician identified cases. The nurse provides appropriate health care referral, educates families about lead poisoning prevention, follows individual cases for compliance with care, works cooperatively with the environmental health department to assess environmental concerns, and provides appropriate documentation and reporting to the state. A toll free number, 1-800-427-6897, is available to contact the CLPPP Coordinator for any questions or referrals to the program. Additional information may be found on these websites:
