Michigan State University and Hurley Children's Hospital are teaming up to help children in Flint who have been exposed to lead in their water. The Pediatric Public Health Initiative will be headed by Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the Flint pediatrician who discovered high lead levels in children after the city switched to the Flint River as its water source in 2014.
