MI Senator Debbie Stabenow and Flint Mayor Karen Weaver Welcome Big Blue Doctor’s Office on Wheels to Hurley Children’s Hospital
FLINT, MI (February 12, 2016) – In response to requests for assistance from federal, state and local authorities, New York-based non-profit Children’s Health Fund (CHF) has deployed one of its fleet of big blue mobile medical clinics from New York City to Flint, MI to help provide health resources to children who have been exposed to lead in the two years since the city switched its water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River. CHF’s iconic mobile clinic will be integrated into the services coordinated by Hurley Children’s Hospital in Flint, a division of Hurley Medical Center.
“This mobile medical clinic will make an enormous difference in the lives of thousands of Flint children,” said U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow. “This clinic will give hope to families in Flint who are so worried about their children’s health and safety. I am very pleased to be a long-time partner with the Children’s Health Fund, and I am grateful they have responded to our request for help for Flint children.”
