Lead dust could be in neighborhoods and negatively affecting children, pregnant women, construction workers and their families. This lead screening is a free, simple finger stick with results in 3 minutes. People who show elevated results will receive education on dietary changes, removing the source of lead exposure, and retesting at intervals. Higher elevations are reported to the state and require a venous blood test follow up.
