On September 24, 2015 Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, a pediatrician at Hurley Hospital in Flint, Michigan shared in a press conference her research findings of lead exposure.  A water change the previous year had resulted in lead exposure being doubled in Flint’s children.  Dr. Hanna-Attisha’s unwavering commitment to children in Flint saved thousands of lives and reinvigorated efforts for lead prevention, detection, and advocacy.
