Abstract Education and counseling are relatively inexpensive components of some programs for reducing blood lead levels in children. However, these measures have not been conclusively demonstrated to be effective. The purpose of this study was to determine whether blood lead levels declined after in-home educational visits. The interventions were conducted from 1991 to 1993 by regular Milwaukee Health Department staff who went to homes of children with elevated (20-24 micrograms/dl) blood lead levels. The in-home educational visits described hazards associated with childhood lead exposure, and potential sources of the hazards in the home were identified. The importance of the child's personal hygiene, the child's nutrition, and overall dust reduction and cleaning practices was also discussed. The visits lasted about one hour and were performed by health department paraprofessionals. The in-home educational visits are part of a program designed to reduce children's lead exposure in Milwaukee where widespread blood lead testing identifies children with elevated blood lead levels. Outreach workers and/or other public health officials currently attempt to contact each family with children having elevated blood lead levels.
