Physicians for Social Responsibility, Arizona is based in Tucson, but serves members throughout the state as well as the Phoenix area. The chapter was founded in 1982 as PSR/Southern Arizona with headquarters in Tucson, AZ. The chapter’s unique work in the past included the development of the Tucson Center for Economic Conversion (“swords into plowshares”), opposition of the Titan Missiles in Tucson and the active support of the Nuclear Test Ban.
Currently we focus our efforts on nuclear weapons treaties, climate change action, and promotion of renewable energies, especially solar energy. We collaborate with a number of other peace and environmental organizations in our communities.
The Chapter Coordinator is Barbara H. Warren, MD, MPH. Our advisory board includes David Spence, MD; Eve Shapiro, MD, MPH; Rick Graap, MD; Russell Lowes; Mary Gresham, RN; and Barbara Warren, MD, MPH. We do not have a staff or office. Inquiries should be directed to Dr. Warren at 520-325-3983.
