UW-Madison will provide a free blood lead test for children at the Child Development Lab the morning of Thursday, July 27, 2023. This screening will be provided by occupational medicine staff from Environment, Health & Safety.
The test will consist of a fingerstick (also called capillary sampling) to screen blood for lead. Each child’s appointment will take approximately 10 minutes, and parents will need to accompany their child(ren) for this event.
Results are available within approximately one week and will show the level of lead in the blood.
Registration has closed. If you did not register but would like your child screened, please email email@example.com.
If you already registered, an occupational medical clinic staff member will call you to set a 10-minute appointment. (If you have multiple children enrolled at CDL that you would like tested, please plan for multiple appointments.)
Please note there are also two forms you need to complete before your appointment. See below.
