For Hanna-Attisha, discovering high levels of lead in Flint's water supply turned her into an instant activist. She said she had no choice but to speak out on behalf of children and their parents. "My days are longer," said Hanna-Attisha, who also is director with the Michigan State University/Hurley Pediatric Public Health Plan Initiative. "It is nonstop, every week. It is intense. The media comes and goes, but our work is just beginning for the kids and community; it is a long-term commitment."
