Lead in District - Health Care Providers

Lead Safe Practices for Healthcare Providers

Talking to Caregivers: Anticipatory Guidance

Protecting children from lead means more than just screening. Providers should engage parents/guardians about conditions that put their children at risk.

Lead Screening       

District law requires ALL children to be tested twice by two – once between 6-14 months and again between 22 and 26 months. But there are also other specific circumstances that trigger screening requirements.

Diagnosing and Managing Lead Exposures

The District monitors all lead screenings conducted in the District and oversees an immediate emergency response for lead levels above 45 ug/dL.
