Lead Poisoning Prevention Program
Florida's Lead Poisoning Prevention Program conducts surveillance of blood lead testing and poisonings in the state, promotes blood lead screening for high-risk populations, and provides information to health care providers, individuals, and businesses on lead poisoning prevention.
The program activities include:
- Surveillance and Epidemiology
- Lead Poisoning Investigation
- Primary Prevention
- Coordination of Care
- Lead Safety and RRP (Renovation, Reporting, and Painting)
- Strategic Partnership
When children have elevated levels of lead in their blood, DOH-Volusia’s staff conduct interviews and field investigations to determine sources of lead in the home or environment.
