Help the Waukesha County Health Department celebrate Public Health Week! Join us on Wednesday, April 4th where the focus for Public Health Week is to help protect and maintain a healthy planet.
We will be doing FREE lead screenings for the first 20 children ages 9 months through their 5th birthday (4 years 11 months 30 days). According to the Center for Disease Control: "24 MILLION homes in the U.S. contain deteriorated lead paint and elevated levels of lead-contaminated house dust". Even low levels of lead in blood have been shown to affect IQ, ability to pay attention, and academic achievement. For more information visit: https://www.cdc.gov/nceh/lead/
