Residents: Supreme Court Should Not Hear Appeal Of Flint Water Crisis Ruling

WASHINGTON, D.C. - A group of Michigan residents on Feb. 5 filed a consolidated brief in the U.S. Supreme Court arguing that three separate petitions for writ of certiorari filed by various Michigan entities should be denied because a federal appellate panel "faithfully applied this Court's precedents" when it ruled that the residents' claims related to the lead-contaminated drinking water crisis in Flint, Mich., are not preempted by the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) (Daniel Wyant, et al. v. Melissa Mays, et al., No. 17-901, Jeff Wright, et al. v. Melissa Mays, et al., No. 17-666, and City of Flint, et al. v. Beatrice Boler, et al., No. 17-989, U.S. Sup.).

CONCLUSION: When comparing the basic and extended foot care education means scores, participants had less extended foot care knowledge than basic foot care knowledge. This study also showed that insurance status had considerable influence on extended foot care knowledge. In an African American population with T2DM, regardless of education and gender, there are considerable differences between how foot care knowledge is translated into actual foot self-care behaviors.
