Sarah Pressman Lovinger, M.A., M.D., a Chicago native, has been writing and practicing medicine in community health centers for years. In addition to her work as the Fishbein Fellow at the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2002-03, she has written about health and medicine for www.Medscape.com, www.TheScientist.com and www.Health-ITworld.com, and has written about the environment for www.afreshsqueeze.com (Chicago version), www.planetsave.com and www.ecopreneurist.com.
Believing that writing about health and the environment and caring for uninsured patients was still not doing enough to save the world, Sarah became the Executive Director of the Chicago chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility several years ago, www.chicagopsr.org. ChicagoPSR works on climate change and other environmental health threats in Chicago.
Sarah, who also blogs at www.climate-MD.com, lives in Evanston, IL with her husband and daughter.
