In January 2016, Michigan State University and Hurley Children’s Hospital formed the Pediatric Public Health Initiative (PPHI) to address the Flint community’s population-wide lead-in-water crisis and help all Flint children grow up healthy and strong. Dr. Saxe-Custack, a Flint-area native, serves as Director for the Nutrition Intervention Team of PPHI. Her work includes the development and implementation of Michigan’s first fruit and vegetable prescription program for pediatric patients as well as Flint Kids Cook, a nutrition and culinary program that has reached over 500 children. Dr. Saxe-Custack will share details of these interventions and related research efforts.
