PSR/Florida is a non-profit organization whose vision is a healthy, just and peaceful world for present and future generations. Guided by the values and expertise of medicine & public health, we work to protect human life from the gravest threats to health and survival. PSR’s strategy for achieving its vision is to educate and activate the medical and broader health community, and the public, through research, analysis, collaboration, and targeted communications and to advocate for government and societal change at the local, state and national level. We strive to bring the medical and public health voice to slow, stop and reverse global warming and toxic degradation of the environment, to promote safe efficient energy solutions and to prevent nuclear war and proliferation of nuclear weapons.
PSR Tampa Bay was founded in 2008 by Drs Lynn Ringenberg and Donald Mellman. We’re a chapter of national PSR which was founded in 1961. We work closely with the community and have developed collaborative relationships with like minded organizations. In 2012 the chapter expanded to cover the entire state and changed our name to PSR/Florida. As a statewide organization we have Steering Committee members located in 9 distinct areas of the state. Each Steering Committee member is encouraged to build membership within their local region to address issues of local concern as well as issues that affect the state and the nation.
