Florida Department of Health in Monroe County

Florida's Lead Poisoning Prevention Program conducts surveillance of blood lead testing and poisonings in the state, promotes blood lead screening for high-risk populations, and provides information to health care providers, individuals, and businesses on lead poisoning prevention.

The program activities include:

  • Surveillance and Epidemiology
  • Lead Poisoning Investigation
  • Primary Prevention
  • Coordination of Care
  • Lead Safety and RRP (Renovation, Reporting, and Painting)
  • Strategic Partnership

When children have elevated levels of lead in their blood, DOH-Monroe’s staff conduct interviews and field investigations to determine sources of lead in the home or environment.
