North Township Trustee Frank J. Mrvan is partnering with the East Chicago Health Department and Indiana Department of Health to offer free lead exposure screenings.
“It is imperative that 100 percent of our children in East Chicago are tested for lead exposure,” Mrvan said. “This is a free blood test and it can begin the medical process to reverse the consequences of lead exposure.”
Residents of all ages – children, adults, seniors – are welcome.
