KALAMAZOO, MI— The Kalamazoo County Health & Community Services Department’s Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP) plans to kick-off National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week, October 24-30, 2021, by holding lead screening clinics on October 21 from 1 to 4 p.m. and October 22 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at 311 E. Alcott Street. This clinic is specifically for children affected by the recall issued by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration early this year for certain lead test kits; however, children not specifically impacted by the lead kit recall are also eligible for the lead screening clinics being held.
