Research Participation Opportunity for Responders in the NPN

February 8, 2024

If you are enrolled as a Responder in the Nationwide Provider Network (NPN), you will receive a letter from our NPN administrator, MCA-Sedgwick, sometime in 2024 or 2025. This letter will provide information on how to consent to have your information shared for research purposes. This process to invite Responders to participate in this research is a phased approach and you will get your letter at the appropriate time. This research helps in many ways, including:

  • Improving understanding and knowledge about the health impacts of 9/11,
  • Allowing more accurate diagnoses,
  • Designing better treatments, and
  • Predicting what health problems to expect in responders in the future.

Responders living in the New York Metropolitan Area have already been able to consent to participate in this research. Now, the research program is being expanded to include Responders enrolled in the NPN. In the letter you will find more details as well as instructions on how to consent for this opportunity. Learn more online at https://redcap.link/911_research_consent or by calling the General Responder Data Center at 347-880-6423.
