Physicians for Social Responsibility

 
Doug Dransfield, MD, a retired pediatrician formerly with Maine Medical spoke to us about the need for global nuclear disarmament.  Doug is on the board of the Maine Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility, a Nobel Peace Prize winning international organization focusing on preventing the use or spread of nuclear weapons; slowing, stopping and reversing global warming and stopping the toxic degradation of our environment.  Doug's presentation dealt with the impact of nuclear weapons on the world and the threat which they pose.  His presentation sparked many questions.  Many thanks for a very informative talk.
