NIOSH oversees programs to monitor, screen, treat, and support responders who who
may have been affected physically or mentally by their service at the 9/11 disaster
sites in New York City, the Pentagon in Arlington, VA, and the Shanksville crash
site in Shanksville, PA. Until now, responders in New York have been covered by
the Medical Monitoring and Treatment Program, which did not include the emergency
responders, and the recovery and cleanup workers and volunteers who were directly involved
in the Pentagon and Shanksville sites. All three groups are now covered by the
World Trade Center Health Program.
