Duty of Care

On June 14, 2017, CBC’s World News reported that “5 people, including Michigan health chief, charged in Flint water probe”.   The investigation follows the poor quality of water in Flint where more than 100, 000 people were exposed to high levels of lead.

This topic may not be related to respiratory health but does speak to our accountability and actions as individuals with power and influence over other’s health.
