20/20 in 2016

As all eyes turn towards Philadelphia next week for the Democratic National Convention, we at Physicians for Social Responsibility maintain our focus on public health, public policy, and the well-being of our environment.
It is time for our nation to enhance our vision.

While many of our supporters, students, and Board members plan to speak, educate and march, we at PSR are proud to walk the walk.  And we could not do it without your wonderful support.

We want to reach a new goal of $2016 donations from e-subscribers by July 31st.
We want to increase the number of people supporting PSR’s long-term work with public health and amplify our democratic voice now in Philly and beyond. 

At PSR we know that health problems do not necessarily have easy solutions, nor can we easily identify the core problems. 
Multiple factors affect our health, and PSR continues to be committed to addressing primary and secondary factors affecting the lives of individuals and communities.

Please feel free to give on a sliding scale according to your budget, $16 - $2016.
Thank you for your generosity.
