PSR-LA is proud of the recent accomplishments of Dr. Bob Dodge and Dr. Tova Fuller.
Dr. Bob Dodge, PSR-LA board member and Peace and Security Ambassador, traveled the United States with Dr. Ira Helfand and and Col. Richard Klass (retired) on a speaking tour, Nuclear Security Issues: Medical and Military Perspectives. Dodge and Klass co-authored an op-ed featured in the Nashua Telegraph about the importance of the US’s role in the ratification of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty. The treaty has been signed by 181 countries, including the US, but it will not become international law until it has been ratified by the US and nine other countries. Read “US must play lead role in new test ban treaty” here. Dodge has also authored an article in the Ventura County Star highlighting the exorbitant amount of money that the US Congress has budgeted for weapons and nuclear technologies.

PSR-LA would also like to congratulate former Board Member and Peace and Security Ambassador Dr. Tova Fuller for being the first awarded with the Lown-Alexander-Sidel Award for excellence in medical advocacy. She received the award at the student conference “Rx for Survival.” Dr. Fuller has been a health advocate in the Los Angeles community as a national representative for Student Physicians for Social Responsibility from 2006 to 2009 and a member of PSR-LA’s Board of Directors.
