Pediatrician Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha attended President Trump's address before Congress. She was a guest of Rep. Dan Kildee.

President Trump delivered his first address before Congress Tuesday.  He touched on themes ranging from immigration reform to counter terrorism to education.  One prominent guest in the audience came to hear Mr. Trump’s plans to resolve a crisis in Michigan that’s resounded around the world.

Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha is the Flint pediatrician who blew the whistle on the city’s water crisis by revealing data about elevated blood lead levels in children.  She was in Washington as a guest of Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Flint).  

 

“Dr. Mona,” as she’s known, told WKAR’s Kevin Lavery that there was one key word missing from President Trump’s speech.
