Abstract

The CDC recommends that all 1-and 2-year-old children be screened for lead and that the most effective measure for mitigating lead poisoning in children is through primary prevention. This study evaluates lead screening rates at a Family Medicine Clinic in Williston, VT and seeks to gather community perspective on a potential failure of primary prevention in the town.
