Nuclear Weapons: Can We Get Rid of Them Before They Get Rid of Us?
Presentation by GBPSR board chair and Emergency Physician Dr. Matt Bivens

EVENT DESCRIPTION: We have never been closer to a world without nuclear weapons. The United Nations last year passed a treaty to ban all nuclear weapons, similar to resolutions prohibiting chemical and biological weapons. At the same time, we have rarely been closer to blundering into the use of these same weapons. Join the Greater Boston Physicians for Social Responsibility (GBPSR) for a dynamic presentation about this extremely hopeful yet extremely dangerous moment. Learn about the dangers, the solutions, and how you can get involved. The GBPSR is a local chapter of the Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR®), a national organization of over 50,000 physicians, health care professionals, and supporters known as “the active conscience of the medical community” first formed in 1961 to address the health consequences of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction.
