According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, one million U.S. children have elevated lead levels in their blood. The only way to know for sure if your child has been exposed to lead is with a blood test. A lead screening is conducted by a Public Health nurse with a simple finger prick. The test measures the amount of lead in the blood.
