UM-Flint is offering a special eight-week course, free to the community, on the Flint water crisis and the surrounding issues. It is also available to students as a 1-credit course.
The initiative from the university’s Department of Public Health and Health Services began in late January and features panel discussions with leaders and experts in the Flint water crisis.
“The mission of PHHS is ‘Public Health in the City,’” said Dr. Suzanne Selig, director of the Department of Public Health and Health Sciences at UM-Flint. “We work to reduce health inequities among underserved populations. Focusing on a crisis that impacts our city and its citizens is front and center of our mission.”
