Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha & Dr. Luke Schafer, RxKids Flint, Michigan

Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha and Dr. Luke Schafer share the inception and creation of the program RxKids in Flint, Michigan. Rx Kids is the first-ever citywide cash prescription program for pregnant people and babies. Rx Kids provides all pregnant people in the city of Flint with no-strings-attached cash of $1,500 during pregnancy and $500 each month throughout a baby’s first year. The program is also the first ever pilot to be partially funded by public TANF dollars, a groundbreaking moment for the Guaranteed Income movement.
