NYC Launches Comprehensive 9/11 Health Web Site

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg announced on Sept. 9 in his weekly radio address the launch of a new World Trade Center health Web site. The comprehensive Web site, accessible at http://nyc.gov/html/doh/wtc/html/home/home.shtml, was designed to offer a single, comprehensive source for 9/11 health-related issues, consolidating the latest information about scientific research and services, including where those affected can go for free treatment and medicine.

"There is much we still don't know about World Trade Center health effects," said Dr. Thomas R. Frieden, New York City Health Commissioner. "But we do know that some rescue and recovery workers, city employees, and residents have experienced health problems. Some have experienced respiratory illnesses, such as asthma, or mental health issues such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. The new Web site is a great way for people to get timely, reliable information about health effects and learn where they can get help."

The site's key features include:

  • Health information targeted to each affected group (workers, residents, etc.)
  • Detailed information on where to get evaluation and treatment, including the three WTC Centers of Excellence
  • A compilation of all scientific literature and information about ongoing research
  • Links to financial assistance providers, social-service and environmental groups, and other groups working on issues related to 9/11
  • Resources for health care professionals
