Nancy Gibbs, M.D., Former President, PSR-LA Board of Directors: “I like the way PSR frames the issues of the day through the health prism – whether it is the nuclear threat or gun violence or environmental issues. Everyday we physicians see people who have been impacted by environmental toxins, such as dirty air impacting patients’ COPD. For this reason, we have a great opportunity to provide education to the public, to legislators, and to physicians who may not realize their medical training has given them a way to think about social issues in an entirely new way.”  Read more about Dr. Gibbs.

Curren Warf, M.D., Former President, PSR-LA Board of Directors: “As a pediatrician, I am deeply worried about the world we leave our children. Resources expended on war and nuclear wearpons steal the future by wasting resources that could provided education, healthcare and housing to the world’s children. To me, PSR-LA provides an organized voice of reason for doctors and others that can help build a better world.” Read more about Dr. Warf.

Margaret Wacker, M.D. PSR-LA Board of Directors: “I need PSR-LA because the issues keep changing, and PSR-LA offers the support I need to stay current.” Read more about Dr. Wacker.
