Tell President Obama and the US DOT to stop oil trains carrying diluted tar sands and fracked shale oil from the Bakken formation—both are more toxic, more explosive, and more carbon-intensive than conventional crude.
Physicians, nurses, and concerned citizens committed to a safe environment and healthier Texas
Texas Physicians for Social Responsibility (TX PSR), formerly Austin PSR, is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit formed in 2003 in Austin, Texas. As the only Texas affiliate of Physicians for Social Responsibility, Texas PSR represents National PSR’s mission to assert a strong medical voice, guided by the values and expertise of medicine and public health, to protect human life from the gravest threats to health and survival.
TX PSR's strategy for achieving positive change is to provide a conduit for the medical community to educate and inform the public and lawmakers about potential threats to the public health through research, analysis, and expert testimony on key issues.
TX PSR’s membership is geographically and professionally diverse with members in all major cities representing physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. TX PSR corresponds with approximately 1,400 members and supporters on a monthly basis through our newsletters, e-mail campaigns, Facebook page, and other online media.
