Part of the Water's Extreme Journey lecture series. Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha will present an overview of her research on how the elevated lead levels in Flint’s water have impacted and will continue to impact exposed children. Learn what you can do to mitigate the effects of lead exposure for your children.

Dr. Hanna-Attisha brought Flint children’s elevated blood lead levels to the attention of the nation after the city began using improperly treated Flint River water as its drinking supply. Dr. Hanna-Attisha is the director of the pediatric residency program at Hurley Medical Center and assistant professor of pediatrics at Michigan State University. She also leads the new Pediatric Public Health Initiative to address the Flint community’s population-wide lead exposure and help all Flint children grow up healthy and strong.
