The Flint Water Crisis: A Discussion with Axelrod Prize Recipient Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha

April 3, 2023 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

In 2014, the city of Flint, Michigan changed its municipal water supply source to the Flint River, leading to contamination of the drinking water. Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, a physician-scientist in Flint, was instrumental in publicly documenting increases in blood lead levels among children, which prompted a federal public health emergency. Join us to hear Dr. Hanna-Attisha give remarks and engage in discussion about her role in uncovering this crisis and advocating for children in Flint and nationally.
