Dr Margaret Beavis is a GP with over twenty five years’ experience in community medicine. Her research, writing and teaching interests include nuclear weapons, nuclear waste and the weapons industry. She is also interested in the Australian government spending on defence, diplomacy and foreign aid and how Australia decides to go to war. She has a particular interest in health and the environment, both on a global scale, and in her local community. Recent publications have focused on the UN treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons and nuclear waste issues in Australia.
To quote the late Dr Bill Williams, one time president of MAPW, "there's no point improving the nation's collective cholesterol level if we poison the earth for our grandchildren."
