WTC Health Program Honors First Responders

Posted at 6:00 am September 11, 2015, in Research Highlights

Fourteen years after the unforgettable World Trade Center Disaster of 9/11/2001, the staff and faculty of EOHSI’s WTC Health Program would like to say “thank you” to those who risked their lives and health in the rescue and recovery efforts.

Dr. Iris Udasin, the medical director of the World Trade Center Health Program at Rutgers, encourages all responders to observe the anniversary by taking care of their health and celebrating the joys in their lives. The program provides annual monitoring exams to members as well as referrals for treatment of World Trade-related conditions. The WTCHP recently published its Fall 2015 Newsletter containing member information and health tips.

At EOHSI we are committed to research that aims to help those responders whose health, as a result of their selfless actions, was affected by this disaster. For information about ongoing studies and to find out how you can help, read more here.
