NUCLEAR FAMINE: A BILLION PEOPLE AND A PLANET AT RISK
with DR. ANDREW KANTER, M.D., M.P.H.

Recent scientific studies reveal that even a “limited” nuclear war would cause disastrous effects on global climate change and undoubtedly result in severe global famine. An expert in several areas, including nuclear power, nuclear waste, radiation exposure, the Iran nuclear crisis, nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament, and global warming and clean energy options, Dr. Kanter will address practical action steps to protect human beings and the planet by working steadily and assiduously toward the complete abolition of nuclear weapons.

Andrew Kanter, MD, MPH is President of the New York City Chapter and Member of the National Board of Physicians for Social Responsibility, and Assistant Professor of Clinical Biomedical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology at Columbia University. He also currently the directs the Health Information Systems/Medical Informatics program for the Millennium Villages Project of the Earth Institute at Columbia. Dr. Kanter has been involved with Physicians for Social Responsibility since 1982 when he started a chapter at UCLA. In 1985 he was appointed as the first full-time Medical Student Liaison to the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War. He has traveled extensively around the world and has had first-hand experience of the effects of militarism on development and the environment
