It took only two days for the institutional review board at Hurley Medical Center, a city-owned hospital in Flint, to approve the research plan presented by Mona Hanna-Attisha, a Hurley pediatrician, to test children she thought might be exposed to lead poisoning through Flint’s water supply. "What we did in that short period of time could only have happened at an institution like Hurley," said Hanna-Attisha, who is also an professor at College of Human Medicine at Michigan State University. "We are very lean."
