Catherine Thomasson, MD

Dr. Thomasson is the current executive director of Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR).  She is an internal medicine physician by training, but has interwoven her clinical work with political work, primarily with Oregon PSR from 2000-2006 as president of the board and then co-president of the national PSR board from 2006-8.  She helped to successfully call for early closure of Oregon’s last coal-burning power plant, served on numerous boards and advisory committees for health and safe water issues in Oregon and brought the health voice to the Climate Change City Plan of Portland and to state coalitions addressing transportation and health.  She taught Climate Change and Public Health at Portland State University.
