  • Description

The New York State (NYS) Department of Health funds three Regional Lead Resource Centers (RLRCs) across the state to educate healthcare providers about lead poisoning prevention, coordinate clinical care of children and pregnant women with elevated blood lead levels (EBLLs), and build healthcare providers' capacity to promote lead poisoning prevention. The purpose of the RLRC program is to promote a standard of excellence in lead poisoning prevention and treatment among healthcare providers, county health departments, and communities. RLRC's primary focus is providing education for healthcare providers that care for children and pregnant women.
