As we develop this program, we will provide consultative advice and education to parents, renters, realty agents, mangers and owners on health hazards both inside and outside of residential areas. We are excited to offer information on many possible environmental contaminations to children such as mold, radon, carbon monoxide, household chemicals, pesticides, etc. and especially lead.
Lead remains a health hazard to every child that lives or regularly visits a pre-1978 dwelling that is in unstable condition. It will remain an independent program for the Wayne County Health Department. For more information about childhood lead poisoning prevention or to contact us (Wayne/ Wilson Lead Poisoning Prevention program) or for more information, go the Lead Poisoning link.
Consult Your Physician
We encourage parents to consult their physician or care provider for any medical questions or specific care advice for their child. For more information on child health issues, you may contact the Child Health coordinator at Wayne County Health at 919-731-1000.
