Given the recent oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, I've been thinking quite a bit about the environment. What can physicians do to improve the environment? We can make donations and volunteer our time, but can we do more? If you haven't done so already, it's time to join the Physicians for Social Responsibility
Physicians for Social Responsibility is a non-profit advocacy
organization that is the medical and public health voice for policies to
prevent nuclear war and proliferation and to slow, stop and reverse
global warming and toxic degradation of the environment.
Physicians for Social Responsibility's vision is a healthy, just and peaceful world for present and future generations.
Guided by the values and expertise of medicine and public health, Physicians for Social Responsibility works to protect human life from the gravest threats to health and survival.
PSR's strategy for achieving its mission is to educate and activate the medical and broader health community, and the public, through research, analysis, collaboration, and targeted communications and to advocate for government and societal change at the local, state, national, and international level.
