Lead Poisoning Prevention Program is started by Alameda County, Calif. to educate the community about the dangers of lead poisoning. The program follows an approach that combines health, environmental and residential hazard reduction services. Its mission is to prevent and reduce the incidence of childhood lead poisoning by educating the public to the dangers of lead poisoning, providing case management services to lead-poisoned children, identifying, reducing and remediating lead hazards, assisting local housing departments in remediating lead hazards, and assisting the medical community in identifying and effectively treating lead poisoned children. Public health nurses and community health outreach workers provide services to children with elevated blood levels or lead poisoning. Lead Poisoning Prevention Program operates through an office in Oakland, Calif.
