Michigan public officials’ decision to change Flint’s water supply in 2014 created widespread lead contamination in the city’s drinking water. Pediatrician Mona Hanna-Attisha, MD, MPH, revealed the tainted water’s effects on the city’s children during an unusual press conference in 2015. Although it took 7 years, a grand jury handed down indictments against 9 public officials, including Governor Rick Snyder, for their roles in the crisis. JAMA Medical News Associate Managing Editor Jennifer Abbasi recently caught up with Hanna-Attisha to discuss the health of Flint’s children, the future of its water supply, and other pressing public health issues.
