Nuclear weapons, by their very existence, pose a grave and potentially catastrophic threat to human health and to all life on Earth. Join us to learn more about the growing danger of nuclear war, and what health professionals can do about it, with Dr. Ira Helfand.
Ira Helfand, MD is an emergency medicine physician, Co-President of IPPNW (International Physicians for Prevention of Nuclear War), winner of 1985 Nobel Peace Prize, and Chief of National PSR (Physicians for Social Responsibility) Security Program.
Following Dr. Helfand’s talk, Oregon PSR members and friends are invited to join us for informal discussion over coffee from 9:30 until 10:30 AM.
