9/11 Health Training

Introduction to the WTC Health Program

The World Trade Center (WTC) Health Program provides medical monitoring and treatment for emergency responders, recovery and cleanup workers, and volunteers who helped after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, at the WTC, the Pentagon, and the crash site near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The WTC Health Program also provides health evaluations and treatment for eligible people who were present in the dust or dust cloud on 9/11 or who worked, resided, or attended school, childcare, or adult daycare in the New York City disaster area for a period of time on 9/11 and/or during the following months. The activities below will explain details of the WTC Health Program, as well as provide clinical information for screening and treating patients who may have been exposed to these sites.
