What Do Members Have to Say?

member-benefits-quotesBrowse through select profiles of current members and physicians, and learn why supporting and being involved as a PSR-LA member is so important. Join today!

Nancy Gibbs, M.D., 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.

Tova Fuller, M.S., M.D/Ph.D candidate, UCLA Student PSR and PSR-LA Board of Directors: “I see PSR-LA’s work as a simple extension of the Hippocratic Oath, and of my word in medical shool and research to prevent and cure disease. The organization is presicent and timely, successfully taking on local threats to public health and medical equity. PSR-LA surpasses the physicians requirement to “Priumu non nocere” (First, do not harm), and meets the ethical mandate to “Primum non tacere” (First, do not be silent.)”

Shirley Magidson, PSR-LA Member, 28 years, in memoriam: “I became a member PSR-LA works to protect public health. I remain a member to create a legacy of a healthier planet for future generations.”
