PSR is that rare combination of rigorous thinking and analysis, and unabashed advoacy once we have our data straight and cited. It has a great track record (no nuclear exchange yet!) and is an exciting supportive place to work.
Maye Thompson, RN, PhD is the Environmental Health Program Director at Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility. Her PhD in nursing focused on women's health and policy. She has been an environmental health advocate for 12 years, first as a volunteer, then with PSR. Her interest in Environmental Health was piqued early in her nursing career, working with farm workers in California's Central Valley.
