Take Action

When natural gas and oil are extracted, methane -- a potent greenhouse gas -- leaks into the atmosphere from the wells, compressors, pipes and other infrastructure. Tell EPA to regulate methane now!


Vision Statement 
Physicians for Social Responsibility's vision is a healthy, just and peaceful world for present and future generations.

Mission Statement
Guided by the values and expertise of medicine and public health, Physicians for Social Responsibility works to protect human life from the gravest threats to health and survival.

PSR's strategy for achieving its mission is to educate and activate the medical and broader health community, and the public, through research, analysis, collaboration, and targeted communications and to advocate for government and societal change at the local, state, national, and international level.

Program Goals
Assert a strong medical voice…

... for the prevention of nuclear war, against the development and use of nuclear weapons, and for a reduction in the role of armed force in US foreign and security policy, emphasizing alternative strategies for conflict resolution, including increased diplomacy and the rule of law;

... and to slow, stop and reverse global warming and toxic degradation of the environment.

The Chesapeake Bay Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility was formed to support the national PSR initiatives at the local level. We also focus on issues specific to our region such as greenhouse emissions, eliminate pollution and toxins from our environment and abolish nuclear weapons.

Chesapeake Bay PSR's work is supported by its steering committee of local doctors and health professionals:

Gwen Dubois, M.D.
