Only 23% of children on Medicaid in Colorado have been
tested for lead at ages 12 or 24 months

Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention: Improving Blood Lead Testing and Reporting in Colorado’s Children is a new ECHO series designed to increase blood lead testing and reporting rates of providers across Colorado. This four-session series is designed for primary care providers who serve Medicaid and at-risk patients. Participants will learn about the common sources of lead in Colorado, how to screen patients and care for children with elevated blood lead levels. In addition to didactic teaching, each session offers case study scenarios and in-depth examinations of real-life situations that will be analyzed and discussed.
