Biography

Helen CaldicottDr. Helen Caldicott's humanitarian efforts are uniquely powerful in that she aims at educating and motivating citizens to take action in resolving the nuclear and environmental crises. Dr. Caldicott splits her career between the US and Australia, where she was born in 1938. After receiving her medical degree from the University of Adelaide Medical School, she founded the first of many organizations, the Cystic Fibrosis Clinic at the Adelaide Children's Hospital.  In 1980, she left her professorial position at Harvard University Medical School and put her professional efforts fully into the prevention of nuclear war.  Since then, Dr. Caldicott has authored seven books, and founded an organization called Physicians for Social Responsibility for doctors in the U.S. as well as the Women's Action for Nuclear Disarmament. Abroad, she aided in the creation of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear war, an organization that won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985. Dr. Caldicott has received numerous awards for her arduous efforts; in 2003 she won the Lannon Foundation's Prize for Cultural Freedom, was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Linus Pauling, a Nobel Laureate, and has also been awarded nineteen honorary doctoral degrees. The Smithonian Institue named Dr. Caldicott "One of the Most Influential Women of the 20th Century," and her influence has indeed changed the way the public views their role in environmental destruction.
