South Bend, Health Department holding free lead screening for students

SOUTH BEND, Ind.—The City of South Bend and the St. Joseph County Health Department are providing free lead screenings at Harrison Elementary on March 21 from 3:30 until 6:30 p.m.

The screenings, done in conjunction with South Bend Schools and the South Bend Medical Foundation, will be available for any child between the ages of one and six.

Officials chose to test this age group because they say children between ages one and six are especially at risk because their brains are still developing.

Health experts in the community will also be available to speak with parents about childhood lead poisoning risks and interventions.

Students do not have to attend Harrison to receive testing.
