Welcome to PSR Maine

PSR Maine is a group of health care providers, health professionals in training, and public health and citizen advocates who have shared concerns regarding public health. Our work is informed by scientific and health research – which is the foundation and defining feature of our advocacy and educational programming.

Our Core Issues

Nuclear Weapons

The medical and humanitarian reasons why our military strategy needs to be changed, and eventually nuclear weapons must be abolished

Climate and Health

The health consequences of climate change and air pollution, and the urgent need for policies that will mitigate these risks

Toxic Chemicals

The growing medical evidence that chemical exposures related to industrial pollution and common household product use have complex interactions with human physiology and are contributing to the noted increase in obesity and chronic illnesses.

Our Campaigns

Nuclear Weapons Abolition Advocates

There are currently 68 nations that have ratified and are legally bound by the International Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons which calls for the elimination of all nuclear weapons. The US is not one of them. PSR Maine works in collaboration with representatives from major medical, health, faith, and peace organizations in Maine, to get other organizations and local governments to adopt resolutions educating the public about the urgent humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons and to urge elected officials to prevent nuclear war through policy changes and diplomacy. Join our work in this campaign to encourage other organizations and local governments to endorse the Bank from the Brink statement.

Maine Health Professionals for Climate Action

Maine Health Professionals for Climate Action (MHPCA) is a coalition of health professionals including nurses, physicians, health professional students, and public health leaders concerned about the impacts of climate change on Maine residents, especially those in vulnerable populations. MHPCA was founded in response to what health professionals are already experiencing in health care settings throughout Maine. Are you a health professional? Join us!
