Art, Peace and Health

Honoring the medical community’s role in preventing nuclear war

Dear friends,
Official replicas of two Nobel peace prizes, refreshments, and music and dance performances from around the world will be part of “Art, Peace and Health.” The event celebrates the Nobel Peace Prizes received in 1985 by International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) and their national affiliate Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR), and in 2017 by the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), which IPPNW founded in 2007, for their work in educating the public about the catastrophic medical and humanitarian consequences of nuclear war. 

Founders will be honored and medical students and young doctors from Africa, Central America, Europe and the United States will speak on behalf of a new generation in the continuing international effort to abolish nuclear weapons.

The celebration also opens an exhibit of original poster art by Corita Kent, which she presented to Greater Boston PSR in the 1980s in recognition of its work for a world without war.

Musicians and dancers from Ethiopia, India, Korea, and Portugal will perform, and the Longwood Symphony Orchestra String Quartet will play.

The celebration is open to Boston’s medical community and to the public.
Please join us on Friday, Oct. 26, 4 – 6 p.m. at the Francis A. Countway Library of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
We look forward to seeing you there. An RSVP is not required, but you may respond 
here so that we know to expect you.

Anna Baker, GBPSR Executive Director
Michael Christ, IPPNW Executive Director
