Second Lead Clinic Scheduled in Granville
04/22/16 LICKING COUNTY, OHIO – The Licking County Department has scheduled a second lead clinic at Granville High School in order to ensure all of the students and staff in the district have the opportunity to be screened for elevated lead levels.  The clinic will be held on Thursday, April 28, from 4:00PM-7:00PM at Granville High School in the gym.
 
The Health Department tested a total of 366 individuals during a clinic on April 21 at Granville High School.  Of those screened, only 6, or 1.6%, were found to have elevated blood lead levels.  The elevated levels ranged from 5.5 ug/l-8.9 ug/l.   
 
“Our department was happy to partner with Granville Schools to hold a lead clinic at the high school, and we are looking forward to holding another clinic next week.” said Joe Ebel, Licking County Health Commissioner.  “I want to thank our staff, the district staff, the Licking County Medical Reserve Corps, the American Red Cross, and the Licking County Community Emergency Response Team for assisting us during the clinic.  We were thrilled to serve over 350 people, and hopefully the 2nd clinic will be just as successful.”
