Purchase Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha’s Book

By the crusading pediatrician who brought the fight for justice in Flint to the national spotlight, What the Eyes Don’t See is a powerful first-hand account of the Flint water crisis, the signature environmental disaster of our time, and a riveting narrative of personal advocacy. Here is the dramatic story of how Dr. Mona used science to prove Flint kids were exposed to lead, and how she courageously went public with her research and faced a brutal backlash. The book explores the horrific reality of how misguided austerity policies and callous bureaucratic indifference placed an entire city at risk. A medical and scientific thriller, the book grapples with our country’s history of environmental injustice while telling the inspiring personal story of Dr. Mona whose family roots in social justice activism helped her turn the Flint crisis around.
