The Struggle for Safe and Affordable Water: From Detroit to Flint

The Fundred Reserve Open Lab, dedicated to furthering education and action in DC, and to supporting the voices of individuals against the threat of lead poisoning, nationally, will feature a presentation from Nadia Gaber, an MD/PhD candidate in the UCSF-UC Berkeley joint program in medical anthropology. Nadia is the co-author of “Protecting Urban Health and Safety: Balancing Care and Harm in the Era of Mass Incarceration”, published in The Journal of Urban Health (2015). She will show systems of analyzing lead data, how it is used to anticipate criminalization of youth, and discuss the health effects of mass water shutoffs in Detroit. Nadia is co-leader of the Radical Pedagogies for Critical Social Medicine group and a partner with community-based research and advocacy groups. She will share her efforts with the organization, We The People of Detroit, community coalition builders focused on providing resources that inform, train and mobilize the citizens of Detroit to improve their quality of life.
