  1. Unlike so many health problems that don’t have clear solutions, this seems like a no-brainer. Thank you to the article’s author for continuing to shine a light on Connecticut’s lead poisoning crisis.

  2. Currently dealing with this. Our son had a BLL 23 in November and BLL 18 2 weeks ago. The DOH offers little advice or help, and the abatement plan they require is laughable. Yale childrens failed to contact us after the initial meeting.. contractors come and then never call back. my son has delays, we need help and finding it is impossible. I’d love someone to contact me!

    • Hi
      Dr. Patricia Garcia MD, FAAP from CCMC Healthy Homes program and the Child Health and Development Institute of CT inc. (CDHI), is a great resource and this is her area of specialty. The phone number is 860-837-6244. Your local health department, not DPH should be leading the investigation into the home and also troubleshooting with you for lead sources. Good luck with both of these contacts.
