It's official... we are pleased to introduce you to the new PSR PA! Over the past year, PSR Philadelphia and PSR Harrisburg merged to form a statewide chapter of PSR Pennsylvania (PSR PA).
This transition came naturally, as it became increasingly clear that the issues we care about do not stop at county lines. As PSR PA, we will be able to address statewide health crises, such as fracking, nuclear energy and gun laws, that affect the daily lives of our patients. We look forward to engaging more health professionals across the state and becoming a more powerful advocacy organization on key public health issues.
In the coming months, we have many renewed goals for our organization. We hope to advertise and lobby for health, keeping our statewide presence in mind. To support this effort, we will work to grow our membership and diversify our board, thereby increasing support of our mission. Our goal is to become a respected resource and voice on climate change and environmental health. We will continue events that are unique to our organizations, like Harrisburg’s Speaker Events, and launch initiatives together, such as Concerned Health Professionals of Pennsylvania (CHPPA). We believe this merger will serve to make all of our efforts stronger!
