- What to Expect from Screening Events
A small sample of blood is taken via a capillary finger stick, which feels only temporarily uncomfortable, like a quick pinprick.
Samples are processed on-site through a LeadCare machine, which gives you results after 3 minutes.
We'll offer information about the health effects of lead poisoning, where lead might be in your home and give you information about our grant programs, which can help you remediate lead hazards in your home.
