Physicians for Social Responsibility is guided by the values and expertise of medicine and public health to protect humanity from the gravest threats to health and survival: nuclear weapons, climate change, and toxic pollutants in our environment.
What We Do
PSR is a membership organization with tens of thousand of activists; a third of them are doctors and health professionals. We provide the medical voice to address climate change, toxics in the environment and the prospect of nuclear war by advocating for sustainable energy, a commitment to safe chemicals in our everyday products, and the total elimination of nuclear weapons. Our members put pressure on policymakers, legislators and the Administration to effect change. Our doctors and scientists also interpret studies by leading academics and organizations so that policymakers and the general public can be educated and make good decisions about how to maintain public health.
