ADULT BLOOD LEAD EPIDEMIOLOGY & SURVEILLANCE (ABLES)
The ABLES program is a state-based surveillance program of laboratory-reported adult blood lead levels. The program objective is to build state capacity to initiate, expand, or improve adult blood lead surveillance programs which can accurately measure trends in adult blood lead levels and which can effectively intervene to prevent lead over-exposures. More information about the ABLES program.
