“There are about 30 children (ages 0 to 15 years) with elevated blood lead levels across Saline County discovered through routine blood testing between January 2015 and March 2016. No obvious cause or association between these cases is available, hence the need for the information session and investigation.
Although KDHE is focusing its investigation on children already identified with elevated blood lead levels, the agency will hold a community information session in order to ensure accurate and consistent information. The session will be held on Tuesday, June 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the Salina Community Theatre located at 303 East Iron Ave. Residents with questions are encouraged to attend the public information session.”

On June 22 and 23, we will be conducting FREE lead screening at the Saline County Health Department. NO COST and NO APPOINTMENT needed. For more information: click here.
