Thank you Dr. Mona!

On Oct. 14, we were joined by Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the physician, scientist and public health activist who shined a national spotlight on the Flint, Michigan water crisis. Her book chronicles the fight for clean water. But it also demonstrates the impact of racism, sexism, and economic disparities on local communities. Dr. Hanna-Attisha’s personal story about speaking truth to power was important. Thank you to Jennifer Roberts, Associate Professor in the Department of Kinesiology at the School of Public Health, who interviewed Dr. Hanna-Attisha, and to Dean William Cohen, who hosted the event.
