Not long after enrolling her son in kindergarten, U-M medical anthropologist Abby Dumes took notice of the lead levels in the drinking water used in the Ann Arbor school district.  From there, Dumes started working with school officials to reduce lead contamination not only in the Ann Arbor district, but for school districts all over Michigan.  Dr. Dumes talks about her work with WEMU's David Fair and Michigan League of Conservation Voters executive director Lisa Wozniak in this month's "1st Friday Focus on the Environment."
