Four News Stories on the Flint, Michigan Lead Crisis

In each of my three classes this semester the crisis involving lead contamination in Flint, Michigan has been discussed. It is apparent as a health science major that this health crisis causes a lot of commotion within the scientific community. However, it causes an even greater commotion for those who are affected by this event.

To keep up to date with the latest happenings, the professor for my introduction to epidemiology and biostatistics course decided to post links to articles and an online documentary that report on the events that have taken place in Flint. The following listicle provides links to these stories which take on both personal accounts of the crisis and larger theories and ideas that stem from this widely publicized event.


  1. “TIMELINE: Here’s how the Flint water crisis unfolded”
  2. “Not Safe to Drink” Documentary
  3. “Flint, Michigan: Did race and poverty factor into water crisis?”
  4. “Unsafe Lead Levels in Tap Water Not Limited to Flint”
