Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Prevention Program
Insure that children are tested for lead poisoning.   It’s the law!  Recent legislative changes to NH’s childhood lead poisoning prevention law require that all children have a blood lead level (BLL) test at age 1 year and again at age 2 years. BLL tests are usually completed during Well Child Check visits and can often be done in the pediatric medical office with just a ‘finger stick’ blood sample. Governor Sununu signed Senate Bill (SB) 247 into law on February 8, 2018 with Universal (BLL) Testing becoming effective April 9, 2018.  Children exposed to lead often look and act healthy. The only way to know is a test. Protect children from the negative consequences of lead poisoning by insuring they are tested at age 1 and age 2 years. Look for the lead (Pb) test results on children’s health forms.
