Health Effects of War
John Pearson, MD

Presented by John Pearson, MD (Physicians for Social Responsibility). This presentation puts the “War on Terror” in perspective by examining whether war is an appropriate response to 9/11/2001. Will global war reduce the threats against our country, or will it perpetuate the cycles of violence? Dr. Pearson will look beyond the death and destruction of war and explore other effects, including civilian casualties, environmental and economic breakdowns, refugees, and land mines. He will then explore a positive vision for a peaceful end to terrorism, including reducing WMD’s here in the U.S., increasing development aid to poor countries, and reducing our dependence on foreign oil.

Dr. Seward will try to answer that question and propose an alternative set of principles to guide a post-Bush foreign policy designed to restore America’s capacity to be a strong and constructive global influence
