About 12 percent of city children under age 6 who were screened for lead in 2016 and 2017 had a level of the toxin in their blood that required action, according to new data released by the Ohio Department of Health.
This staggering figure makes Ohio one of the largest in the country for lead exposure. Thankfully, Ohio law requires local health departments to assist families facing lead poisoning.
If your child has tested above a threshold of 5 micrograms per deciliter of lead, you are entitled to help.
We have proudly dedicated our practice to protecting children and families battling lead poison.
