The Physicians Committee is leading a revolution in
medicine—putting a new focus on health and compassion. The Physicians
Committee combines the clout and expertise of more than 12,000
physicians with the dedicated actions of 150,000 members across the
United States and around the world.

Our efforts are dramatically changing the way doctors treat chronic
diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and cancer. By
putting prevention over pills, doctors are empowering their patients to
take control of their own health.
And we are also building a new way of viewing research. Since 1985,
the Physicians Committee has been working tirelessly for alternatives to
the use of animals in medical education and research and advocating for
more effective scientific methods.
Our staff of physicians, dietitians, and scientists is
working with policymakers, industry, the medical community, the media,
and the public to create a better future for people and animals.
