February 15, 2016 - MedPage Today

Mona Hanna-Attisha, MD, the pediatrician who first discovered the lead-laced water in Flint, Mich., is having a surreal year. "I come home every day and my husband asks 'What happened today' and I'm like 'I just met with the head of the HHS and the head of the CDC and I just did a press conference with our U.S. Senator and we introduced new legislation, and next week, I'm going to D.C. to testify in front of Congress," she told MedPage Today. "It's just surreal -- if I show you my schedule, it's unbelievable."
