Texas PSR is excited to be partnering with the Medical Society Consortium for Climate and Health and the Port Arthur Community Action Network to bring you our first Health Advocacy Trip.

On the afternoon of August 2, a group of healthcare professionals (including students) from around Texas will meet in Port Arthur for a training followed by a tour of fenceline communities impacted by fossil fuel transportation, storage and processing. The evening of August 2 we will join community members for dinner and conversation. We will stay overnight and on Saturday, August 3 will host a community health fair for fenceline communities at the West Side Development Center in Port Arthur.

Please consider joining us! Free transportation available and we have scholarships for hotel expenses for students, on a first come, first served basis. To express interest and join our email list for more information about the trip, please sign-up here.
