Chesapeake PSR's President Gwen DuBois, MD MPH, offers some thoughts on the significance of the ICAN's Nobel Peace Prize and renews our call for the United States to ratify the Treaty to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons.
Why Chesapeake PSR continues to advocate for the end of nuclear weapons. Even a limited nuclear weapons strike could have cataclysmic consequences.
A nuclear weapons ban is more critical than ever. Read about our work to educate health professionals, policymakers and the public on the danger of nuclear weapons - and why there is a ray of hope.
The U.N. nuclear weapons ban treaty was adopted June 7, 2017 - but the U.S. and other nuclear-armed nations boycotted the talks. Chesapeake PSR's Dr. Gwen DuBois and IPPNW's Ira Helfand, MD, speak to why the world must ban nuclear weapons.
After decades of deadlock over disarmament, the United Nations is developing a treaty to prohibit the use of nuclear weapons. Chesapeake PSR spent the week in New York showing support for the ban effort.
The U.S. boycotted the Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty negotiations that began March 27, 2017 at the U.N. More than 115 nations participated on the first day, but, as expected, the U.S. and other nuclear-armed states boycotted.
The U.S. is set to spend a trillion dollars on "modernizing" our nuclear weapons arsenal, putting all humans on Earth at risk of nuclear war. Chesapeake PSR supports efforts to enact a nuclear weapons ban and invest in rebuilding safe and healthy communities.
