Dr. Phil Landrigan Interviewed in Yahoo! News Articles about Flint

Following the lead poisoning catastrophe in Flint, MI this January, Dr. Phil Landrigan was quoted in two Yahoo! News articles to discuss the prevalence of lead poisoning across the country, particularly in lower-income, underrepresented communities. ‘“I think it’s perfectly appropriate to rally around Flint,” says Philip Landrigan, a pediatrician and Dean for Global Health at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. “But people need to realize that Flint is not an isolated example and there are places that are even worse. It’s happening all over the country and it’s tightly tied to race, ethnicity and economic circumstances.”’ Dr. Landrigan is featured in both ‘Poisoned by Lead: Portraits that will Haunt Flint Parents‘ and ‘It’s Not Just Flint That’s Poisoned.’
