October 24, 2016 - American Academy of Pediatrics

While the children in Flint, Mich., still do not have water they can drink, they now have access to a full complement of health, nutrition, education and transportation services to help support their development and mitigate effects of lead poisoning. At Sunday’s plenary session, Mona Hanna-Attisha, M.D., M.P.H., FAAP, shared her story of advocacy, persistence and community resilience after the city’s water supply became contaminated with lead.
