This guidance on childhood lead screening was developed by CDC in consultation with the members and consultants of the Advisory Committee on Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention. The committee comprises non- Federal experts drawn from health departments, pediatric practices, managed-care organizations, academia, and non-governmental agencies working on affordable housing and public lead poisoning prevention education. The guidance was also reviewed by childhood lead poisoning prevention program managers and was available during a 6-week period for public comment. The final document is from CDC and does not necessarily reflect the views of all members of the advisory committee.
