Michigan Health Department focused more on communications, than scientific evidence of increased lead levels in Flint’s children [FOIA Emails Part II]

We have been getting requests to release the second set of Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) emails we obtained via Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. A few from this packet were profiled on NBC’s Nightly News and MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show earlier this evening. We may release our own analysis at a later stage but here are the emails for the public.

You can access the first 150+ page FOIA packet and our analysis of how “DHHS Hid Evidence of Health Harm Due to Lead Contaminated Water: Allowed False Public Assurances by MDEQ and Stonewalled Outside Researchers” here.

  1. I enjoy you because of every one of your effort on this web page. Kim loves engaging in investigations and it’s obvious why. My spouse and i hear all relating to the powerful mode you make helpful guides on this blog and as well as encourage contribution from some others on that subject plus our own girl is certainly discovering a whole lot. Take advantage of the rest of the new year. You are carrying out a fabulous job.
