  1. On Thursday, September 14, 2017, the Heinz Family Foundation honored pediatrician and public health advocate Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha by making her the recipient of the 22nd Heinz Award in the public policy category. The accolade includes an unrestricted cash award of $250,000.

In 2014, shortly after the city of Flint switched its water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River, residents in the city began complaining about the pungent brown water flowing from their faucets. Although state officials maintained that the water was safe, Hanna-Attisha was not convinced. She had previously studied findings by leading lead researcher and Virginia Tech civil engineering professor Marc Edwards, which indicated that the untreated water in Flint was 19 times more corrosive than the water that had been previously sourced from Lake Huron

How a Muslim Pediatrician, Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha saved the lives of thousands in Flint from lead tainted water.

Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha spotted a problem — lead — and wouldn’t let it go until others in Michigan paid attention.
