Lead Screenings and Testing
The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Awareness program is located at Patee Market Health Center. The program offers free lead screenings for children up to six years of age, available by appointment. Program hours are Monday - Friday from 8am-5pm. Please call 816-271-4725 with any questions regarding lead testing or how to safely remove lead paint. Keep your children lead free so that they can stay healthy and grow up happy. 
Educational programs about lead poisoning prevention and awareness are offered by appointment for children’s groups, daycare facilities, schools, parent/community groups and other professionals. For additional information, or to schedule, please call 816-271-4725.

Nursing case management services are available, in-clinic, to children that have been identified as having elevated blood-lead levels. The nursing case manager provides one-on-one and community education about the dangers of lead poisoning, how to prevent it, and how to clean up a lead-contaminated environment. Please call 816-271-4725 for additional information.

Home environmental testing is done at no charge. If you are remodeling a home built before 1978 and would like to receive a book on lead safe remodeling practices or to speak to an environmental health staff member, please call 816-271-4636.
