Mona Hanna-Attisha, M.D.

From the Flint Water Crisis to Championing Global Policies for Children's Health

The 23rd Annual Jacoby-Lunin Humanitarian Lecture in affiliation with the Carl and Dorothy Bennett Center for Judaic Studies

Mona Hanna-Attisha, M.D., M.P.H., FAAP, is founder and director of the Michigan State University and Hurley Children’s Hospital Pediatric Public Health Initiative, an innovative and model public health program in Flint, Michigan.

Her new bestselling book, What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City, is a riveting, beautifully rendered account of a shameful disaster that became a tale of activism and hope.  It’s the story of a city on the ropes that came together to fight for justice, self determination, and the right to build a better world for their—and all of our—children.

Dr. Hanna-Attisha has testified twice before the United States Congress, was presented the Freedom of Expression Courage Award by PEN America, and named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World for her role in uncovering the Flint Water Crisis and leading recovery efforts. She has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, BBC and countless other media outlets championing the cause of children in Flint and beyond. She is founding donor of the Flint Child Health and Development Fund.
