Now she is visiting the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan to provide insight into the health emergency in Flint. This talk will shed light onto the background of this crisis and explore the next steps to take. The community event features the talk, with questions from the audience, answered by Dr. Hanna-Attisha, to follow.
