November 8th – The Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons Campaign
Saturday, November 8th, 10 am-1 pm

PSR-LA is holding a special training on Saturday, November 8 for physicians and health professionals to help grow our efforts for nuclear disarmament.
Dr. Robert Dodge, PSR-LA Board Member, will speak about ways that physicians can become involved in the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons Campaign, a growing international effort to ban nuclear weapons.
The need could not be greater. “In a nuclear world, all war has the possibility of becoming nuclear,” says Dr. Dodge.
PSR-LA was founded upon the recognition that, as with all major public health threats, physicians have a unique role and responsibility to work to prevent what we cannot cure. There is no adequate medical response to nuclear war, so physicians must step outside of their clinical roles and advocate for nuclear disarmament.
It is up to us to educate, motivate, and engage the U.S. public to let decision makers know that we must protect all we hold dear by banning nuclear weapons. Over 50,000 nuclear weapons have already been eliminated; it’s time to take care of the rest.
The unique and credible voice of physicians is key to this effort. If you are a physician or health care professional committed to a nuclear weapons free world, we urge you to join us on November 8 and become part of the solution.

“We physicians who shepherd human life from birth to death have a moral imperative to resist with all our being the drift toward the brink. The threatened inhabitants on this fragile planet must speak out for those yet unborn, for posterity has no lobby with politicians.” – Dr. Bernard Lown
