UM-Flint nursing assists county health department with lead screenings

Within the next several weeks, there are more than ten Genesee County Health Department lead screening and education events planned throughout the community. UM-Flint nursing students and faculty will be at all of them contributing their time and talents.

The department, along with faculty and students from the Department of Public Health and Health Sciences and several others within the university, have been helping out with the clinics, and other efforts, since the county started the program last fall.
