Provider Survey to be Launched February-March 2019
Oregon’s Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP) will be conducting an online survey starting in February 2019 to ask primary care providers about their current lead screening behaviors and potential barriers for screening. A random sample of providers will be selected for this survey, and participation is strongly encouraged if you have been selected.
CLPPP has asked Program Design and Evaluation Services, an evaluation unit within the Public Health Division, to help conduct this survey. If you have any questions, please contact the survey director, David Dowler, at (971) 673-0598 or email@example.com.
