Royal Oak Senior Center, 3500 Marais, Royal Oak MI 48073

This will be a homecoming for Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, who is a 1994 graduate of Royal Oak’s Kimball High School.  Among her classmates was now-Oakland County Commissioner David Woodward, who arranged this visit.

Over the past several months “Dr. Mona” has been featured in numerous local and national news stories on Flint’s water contamination, which has been declared a state and federal disaster.  Dr. Mona was called a “true hero” by talk show host Rachel Maddow for her courage in challenging state officials who for months insisted that Flint tap water was safe for drinkinggarden16_bridget_kevin_deegan_krause and bathing, when in fact the water was contaminated with unsafe levels of lead and other metals.

The meeting is free and open to the public.  For more information please contact club chair Tom Regan at 248-291-9054, email, visit, or visit the “Greater Royal Oak Democratic Club” Facebook page.
