Outstanding Contribution to Healthcare in 2016

October 6, 2016 - Medical Marketing and Media

Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha was awarded Medical Marketing & Media's Platinum Award for Outstanding Contribution to Healthcare in 2016. Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha immediately took action when she learned that the drinking water in Flint, Michigan, was very likely contaminated with lead. The Hurley Medical Center in Flint, where she directs the pediatric residents program, routinely screens children for lead exposure, so she compared the lead levels in blood samples taken before and after Flint's water supply was switched from the Detroit River to the Flint River.
