What The Eyes Don’t See: A Conversation with Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha

Posted on

On Wednesday October 14 at 7:00 pm, all are invited to attend a virtual conversation with Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, pediatrician, professor, and public health advocate, whose research exposed the Flint water crisis.

Dr. Mona will be discussing the her role in the Flint water crisis, the prevention of future water crises, her U.P. roots, and the intersection of science and humanities in her work as a healthcare professional. Her new book, What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis: Resistance, and Hope in an American City, tells the dramatic story of her discovering how the citizens of Flint, Michigan were being poisoned by lead in their water, and her advocacy on their behalf. 

Dr. Mona’s virtual visit to Houghton is a program of the 2019-20 Great Michigan Read presented by Michigan Humanities and sponsored by national, statewide, and local partners, including the national Endowment for the Humanities and The Meijer foundation. Local partners are the Portage Lake District Library, the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts and the Institute for Policy, Ethics, and Culture (IPEC) at Michigan Tech. 

Free copies of What the Eyes Don’t See can be picked up at the Portage Lake District Library before the event.
