• Every child tested.
    Every Future Secured.

    Currently, only about 3% of Utah children, 5 years and younger, have been tested for lead. The Utah Lead Coalition hopes to increase that number to 100%. Every child tested, every future secured means no child’s tomorrow is considered expendable. Ask your healthcare provider to check your child’s blood lead level.
