A program wants to identify victims of the Flint water crisis and give them resources to counter the effects of lead.
More than 2,230 have pre-enrolled for the Flint Registry.
It’s part of the CDC’s ongoing nationwide efforts to reduce and prevent exposure to lead.
“It is important that people who have been exposed to the Flint water crisis have the opportunity to get connected, supported, and counted,” said Mona Hanna-Attisha, MD, MPH, associated professor at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. “We are also collecting information that will allow us to advocate for additional service and resources that are needed in the Flint community.”
The goal is to have at least 100,000 residents enrolled for the program when it launches next month.
