You win some you, you lose some

I had been texting with my daughter during the game and at this point was telling her how awful it felt that the Spartans lost. And then, in all her wisdom (when did she get so smart?) she texted me back this photo she happened across in a magazine at the moment I texted her. She said, “Hey, would you rather the Spartans win basketball, or have one featured in national publications for trying to solve one of the hugest problems to hit the state?” The photo, of course, is of Mona Hanna-Attisha, an assistant professor in the MSU College of Human Medicine and director of the MSU-Hurley Children’s Hospital Pediatric Public Health Initiative. She, along with her team, is credited with discovering the increased levels of lead in children in Flint during the water crisis.
