Each month, Lancaster General Health/Penn Medicine highlights one of our valued partners. Together, we strengthen the health of our community in ways impossible to do alone.
The Lancaster Lead Coalition, a partnership between LG Health/Penn Medicine, Pinnacle Health, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Franklin & Marshall College and the City of Lancaster, works to prevent, screen and track lead poisoning.
If your child has not had a lead screening test by age 1 and you believe they are at risk, contact your primary-care physician to have the test ordered. In some cases, the screening is free or covered by insurance.
