    With our awareness of the depth of the Fukushima disaster, as well as the
    possibilities of numerous other potential nuclear problems, we welcome
    the courageous Dr. Caldicott to our TMRN Roundtable
    The single most articulate and passionate advocate of citizen action to​
    remedythe nuclear and environmental crises, Dr Helen Caldicott, has​
    devoted thelast 38 years to an international campaign to educate​
    the public about the medical hazards of the nuclear age and the necessary​
    changes in human behavior to stop environmental destruction.​
    Born in Melbourne, Australia in 1938, Dr Caldicott received her medical​
    degree from the University of Adelaide Medical School in 1961. She founded the​
    Cystic Fibrosis Clinic at the Adelaide Children’s Hospital in 1975 and subsequently​
    was an instructor in pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and on the staff of the​
    Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Boston, Mass., until 1980 when​
    she resigned to work full time on the prevention of nuclear war.​
    In 1971, Dr Caldicott played a major role in Australia’s opposition to French​
    atmospheric nuclear testing in the Pacific; in 1975 she worked with the Australian​
    trade unions to educate their members about the medical dangers of the​
    nuclear fuel cycle, with particular reference to uranium mining.​
    While living in the United States from 1977 to 1986, she co-founded the​
    Physicians for Social Responsibility, an organization of 23,000 doctors​
    committed to educating their colleagues about the dangers of nuclear power,​
    nuclear weapons and nuclear war. On trips abroad she helped start similar​
    medical organizations in many other countries. The international umbrella​
    won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985. She also founded the​
    Women’s Action for Nuclear Disarmament (WAND) in the US in 1980.​
    Dr Caldicott has received many prizes and awards for her work,​
    21 honorary doctoral degrees, and she was personally nominated for the​
    Nobel Peace Prize by Linus Pauling – himself a Nobel Laureate. The Smithsonian
    has named Dr Caldicott as one of the most influential women of the 20th Century.​
    She has written for numerous publications and has authored seven books,​
    Nuclear Madness, Missile Envy, If You Love This Planet:

    published as A Passionate Life in Australia by Random House),​
    The New Nuclear Danger: George Bush’s Military Industrial Complex
    (2001, The New Press in the US, UK and UK; Scribe Publishing in Australia​
    and New Zealand; Lemniscaat Publishers in The Netherlands; and​
    Hugendubel Verlag in Germany), Nuclear Power is Not the Answer (2006,​
    The New Press in the US, UK and UK; Melbourne University Press in Australia)​
    and War In Heaven (March 2007). Dr. Caldicott’s most recent book is the​
    revised and updated If You Love This Planet (March 2009).​
    Dr Caldicott currently divides her time between Australia and the US where​
    she lectures widely. She founded the US-based Nuclear Policy
    Research Institute (NPRI), which evolved into Beyond Nuclear.​
    Currently, Dr Caldicott is President of​
    an educational outreach project that informs people of the dangers​
    of nuclear power and weapons. The mission of the Foundation is​
    education to action, and the promotion of a nuclear energy and​
    weaponsfree, renewable energy powered, world.​
    Dr Caldicott can be heard discussing urgent planetary survival issues​
    on her weekly radio show If You Love This Planet, and is the Founder and​
    Spokesperson for People for a Nuclear-Free Australia, established to​
    represent the millions of Australians who uphold the strong belief​
    that there should be no uranium mining, nuclear power plants or​
    foreign nuclear waste in Australia.​
