Lake County General Health District continues to offer lead testing to children between the ages of one and six years of age. Lead toxicity in children leads to harmful effects on the developing nervous system and the brain. Recent research shows that even low levels of lead poisoning over time can lead to lower IQ scores. Although Lake County is at low risk compared to other areas of Ohio, there exists the possibility that neighborhoods with older homes will have increased numbers of children with higher levels of lead.

Lead Testing Clinics are held the third Thursday of each month:

 

Painesville – Thursday, January 19, 2012 11:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at Lake County General Health District, 33 Mill Street, Painesville, Ohio 44077.

 

Testing and referrals are free and clinics are by appointment only, but appointments are required.  Please call (440) 350-2554, (440) 918-2554 (West End) or (440) 428-4348, extension 2554 (East End).
