Childhood lead poisoning

The City of Minneapolis aims to eliminate childhood lead poisoning in Minneapolis through outreach, education and partnership with various housing, health, regulatory and community-based agencies.A young child has her blood lead level tested by a quick capillary test.

Childhood lead poisoning is one of the most common yet preventable health problems in the United States. Lead is highly toxic and can be found in chipping and peeling paint, soil, and unregulated products.

Children usually have no overt symptoms, but the damage is profound—including lower academic achievement and behavioral problems.

Ensuring that all children are tested will promote prevention, education and early intervention, and can reduce lead poisoning.
