Lead Poisoning Prevention Program and Case Management

Lead poisoning affects many children younger than 6 years old in Maryland. Lead can harm a child’s brain, causing lifelong learning and behavior problems. Lead dust in the home is caused by chipping, peeling, flaking or deteriorating lead-based paint and can be found in any home. Lead can also be found in toys, jewelry, and other consumer products and may be brought home from some jobs. If your child has an elevated lead level, your medical provider will work with Carroll County Health Department to offer you Lead Case Management services. For more information on how to protect your family from lead please go to: Protect Your Family From Sources of Lead or call 410-876-4956.
