Team Overview

The project seeks to implement a new screening methodology which will incorporate the use of GIS mapping to aid in identifying high-risk neighborhoods for targeted screening and outreach. This endeavor will aid in facilitating a primary prevention approach to lead poisoning in children less than five years of age and decrease the likelihood children will suffer from negative neurobehavioral impacts of lead that can severely undermine their future.
