Hurley Children's Hospital and MSU step in to help the kids in Flint
There's a new initiative being launched to help the victims of the decision to switch water sources in Flint.
Those victims are the children.
The number of Flint children with elevated levels of lead in their blood has doubled since the water switch was made nearly two years ago.
Now we learn that Hurley Children's Hospital in Flint is joining with Michigan State University to help these children.
A key member of this team is the Hurley pediatrician whose research into blood lead levels in Flint kids finally forced the state to admit---contrary to what officials had insisted---water from the Flint River was not safe to drink.
