Welcome to the Marshall County Health Department

Kentucky Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (KCLPPP) is part of the Healthy Homes Initiative and offers a comprehensive approach to primary and secondary prevention of childhood and prenatal lead poisoning and other housing-related health hazards.



Primary prevention includes activities such as blood lead screenings for at-risk populations and education on preventive strategies to decrease childhood and prenatal lead hazard exposure.



Secondary prevention includes case management follow-up for elevated blood lead levels, medical and environmental services, epidemiologic studies, education and connections to other professionals and programs.
