We help prevent, screen, diagnose, and treat childhood lead poisoning. We work to eliminate sources of poisoning through research and educational, epidemiological, and clinical and environmental activities.
Who we serve
We provide a range of both primary and secondary prevention services to the children of Massachusetts, their families, and others. Our goals include identifying lead poisoned children and ensuring that they receive medical and environmental services, as well as preventing further cases of lead poisoning. We develop linkages with a wide array of professionals and programs that provide services to children. We also provide coordinated and comprehensive nursing case management.
