Unsung Heroes – Episode 43 – Interview with Flint Water Crisis Hero Dr. Mona Hanna Attisha

Today we talked to Dr. Mona Hanna Attisha, pediatrician, activist, educator and now writer about her life and pivotal role in exposing the public health crisis of elevated lead levels in Flint’s water. She talks about melding her passion for helping kids with education, public policy and advocacy. We delve into the difficulties of speaking out and making the choice to stand up for the vulnerable, even if it means facing backlash and scrutiny. I highly and enthusiastically encourage everyone to read her amazing book What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City! Wanna help Flint? A portion of the proceeds of the book go to flintkids.com and the Flint Kids Fund and we encourage you to make a donation here as well!
