MSU-Hurley Children's Hospital Pediatric Public Health Initiative


Flint SpartanMichigan State University and Hurley Children’s Hospital formed the Pediatric Public Health Initiative to address the Flint community’s population-wide lead exposure and help all Flint children grow up healthy and strong.

The initiative brings together experts in pediatrics, child development, psychology, epidemiology, nutrition, toxicology, geography, education, and community and workforce development. Hurley Hospital is joined by MSU College of Human Medicine, MSU Extension, MSU College of Education and several other MSU Colleges, and the initiative includes the Genesee County Health Department and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

The initiative is led by Mona Hanna-Attisha, MD, MPH, FAAP, director of the pediatric residency at Hurley Children's Hospital and assistant professor of pediatrics at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine.

“The creation of this Pediatric Public Health Initiative will give Flint children a better chance at future success. This initiative will bring in a team of experts to build a model pediatric public health program which will continue to assess, monitor and intervene to optimize children’s outcomes,” said Dr. Hanna-Attisha.
