Uniformed Services University, Voices of September 11th, CRCVC Partner for Terrorism Bereavement Study

Terrorist attacks were responsible for the deaths of more than 2,977 individuals killed on Sept. 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pa., and 329 individuals (268 of them Canadian citizens) who lost their lives in the Air India Flight 182 bombing off the west coast of Ireland in 1985. Both attacks remain the worst acts of terrorism in the history of their respective countries. In a unique study examining the impact of terrorism related death on family bereavement, scientists from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress (CSTS), led by Dr. Stephen Cozza, will team with Voices of September 11th (VOICES) and the Canadian Resource Center for Victims of Crime (CRCVC) to research the impact of terrorism on surviving family members from these two attacks.
