In February 2019 a small group organized the Medical Symposium on the Health Impacts of Oil and Gas in Colorado, a well-attended event held at Colorado State University. The concerns discussed at the symposium led to the formation of PSR Colorado, a chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility.
MISSION STATEMENT OF PSR COLORADO
Physicians for Social Responsibility works to protect human life from the gravest threats to health and survival. PSR Colorado works to elevate the voice of health professionals to protect the public from the health impacts of hydraulic fracturing, the climate crisis, and exposures to radionuclides and other toxic substances on current and future generations. PSR Colorado advocates for solutions to reliance on fossil fuels and nuclear energy.
