In early 2016, the Flint Water Crisis captured national attention - major news outlets reported that the city’s tap water had been contaminated with lead since April of 2014.

Over the past few years, important data has become available, allowing researchers to rigorously study and measure effects of the lead water crisis on children in Flint.
