Environment & Health

Student PSR believes that individual and community health are intrinsically linked to the health of the environment; in order to improve our own health, we develop a more sustainable relationship with the environment. As health professionals in training, we are in a unique position to highlight the medical problems caused by environmental degradation. Through education and advocacy, SPSR addresses a wide range of environmental issues at the local, regional and national level.
