Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha – What the Eyes Don't See

Thursday, June 28, 7pm
St. Louis County Library HQ

Flint was already a troubled city in 2014 when the state of Michigan—in the name of austerity—shifted the source of its water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River. Soon after, citizens began complaining about the water that flowed from their taps—but officials rebuffed them, insisting it was fine. What the Eyes Don’t See is the inspiring story of how Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, a pediatrician at the city’s public hospital, proved that Flint’s kids were exposed to lead, and fought her own government to expose that truth. Paced like a scientific thriller, the book shows how callous bureaucratic indifference placed an entire city at risk. And at the center of the story is Dr. Mona herself—an immigrant, doctor, scientist, and mother—whose family’s activist roots inspired her pursuit of justice. 

The program will be an onstage interview with St. Louis Public Radio’s Don Marsh. Presented by the Medical Arts Series.

This event is presented by the St. Louis County Library. For more information, please call 314-994-3300.
