The Nevada Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (NvCLPPP) aims to increase childhood lead testing, provide health education to the community, and to connect children who have elevated blood lead levels to vital resources.
Because lead exposure may result in cognitive and behavioral problems, children should be tested for lead exposure at 12 and 24 months, or at least once before they turn six years old.
We want all children to have the opportunity to start school ready to learn and to succeed!
Take the pledge to learn more about childhood lead testing and other ways to keep your child safe.
