Who will fight for safe water for Flint kids? SPARTANS WILL.
Thursday, Governor Rick Snyder announced Flint will reconnect to the Detroit water system and no longer draw water from the Flint River. The announcement follows research by Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha (CHM '02), assistant professor with Michigan State University College of Human Medicine's Department of Pediatrics and Human Development and director of Hurley Medical Center's Pediatric Residency Program. Dr. Hanna-Attisha's research shows the percentage of Flint infants and children with above average lead levels has nearly doubled since the city switched to using the Flint River as its water source.
Congratulations to Spartan MD Mona Hanna-Attisha, who continued the fight for safe water for Flint children until policy changed. Your college is proud of you!
