NYU School of Medicine WTC Health Program Clinical Center of Excellence

As the 19th anniversary of September 11th approaches, we reserve a special moment in our thoughts to remember the responders and survivors and honor the memory of the victims on that day. In the aftermath of 9/11 and in the years that have passed, responders and volunteers showed our country and the world their relentless resolve and how the attacks brought people together.

As we are faced with another wide-scale crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, we strive to adapt to the existing and changing needs of our members. We understand that the anniversary is a difficult time for many, and that the current circumstances have added additional stress during this time. Just like we have offered in the previous years, we urge our members to reach out to our clinic if they need extra support.

We continue to see an increase in 9/11 responders with medical and mental health conditions related to their exposures 19 years ago and we are witness to the impact these have had on their well-being. The NYU School of Medicine WTC Health Program Clinical Center of Excellence recommit ourselves to our mission and express our dedication to provide support and care for our members for years to come.
