First, do no harm,” is a quote by Hippocrates, with which most health professionals are familiar.  We understand that before launching into a new endeavor, we need to make sure that we do not cause harm.  That is the premise by which we are holding our event on September 12th, to shed light on the impacts of climate change and hydraulic fracturing (fracking) on health and on the environment and how to put health back in the spotlight.

First, Do No Harm: Putting Health First in Climate & Energy Issues is designed to inform, educate and engage our supporters so that we are armed with credible information, can talk about these issues with colleagues and peers, and learn how to take actionable steps to curtail their impacts.

Join us on September 12th from 5:30 to 8:30 for a wine, beer & hors d’oeuvres reception, panel discussion and film excerpts.  Panel experts include board members Walter Tsou and MD, MPH, Poune Saberi, MD, MPH, Duquesne clinical professor Lenore Resick, PhD, CRNP, and Iris Marie Bloom, MAPP, of Protecting Our Waters organization.  We’ll cap the night with a dessert reception.  Eat. Drink. Engage.

Register today at psrphila.org.  Because together, we can build a safer, healthier community.
