First, Do No Harm: Putting Health First in Climate & Energy Issues

Posted on September 02, 2013

From Physicians for Social Responsibility:

“First, do no harm,” is a quote by Hippocrates, with which most health professionals are familiar.  We understand that before launching into a new endeavor, we need to make sure that we do not cause harm.  That is the premise by which we are holding our event on September 12th, to shed light on the impacts of climate change and hydraulic fracturing (fracking) on health and on the environment and how to put health back in the spotlight.

First, Do No Harm: Putting Health First in Climate & Energy Issues is designed to inform, educate and engage our supporters so that we are armed with credible information, can talk about these issues with colleagues and peers, and learn how to take actionable steps to curtail their impacts.

Join us on September 12th from 5:30 to 8:30 for a wine, beer & hors d’oeuvres reception, panel discussion and film excerpts.  We’ll cap the night with a dessert reception.

Wine and wine tasting by Moore Brothers Wine Company.  Beer served by Saint Benjamin’s Brewing Company.  Bassetts Ice Cream and Whole Foods Callowhill will provide dessert.  Eat. Drink. Engage.

Register today at  Because together, we can make a build a safer, healthier community.
