Research begins and ends with member care
Since 2001 the WTC Health Program has funded research of the 9/11- exposed population. This research fortifies our understanding of 9/11 health effects. Research also provides a pathway to improved healthcare for people afflicted from 9/11 exposure.
Member privacy is very important
Decisions require plenty of evidence
We add to the research library (new online version coming soon) when new study findings are available. Researchers, clinicians and Program officials carefully review these findings to inform decisions on future research direction and member care. We share these with the broader 9/11 community, including medical professionals working outside the Program in common research areas.

Are you a research participant?
If you are a member who agreed to be included in research, you are helping improve care for those exposed and now sick because of 9/11. You are also contributing to knowledge on how best to respond and provide treatment for survivors of other disasters.
