EMS1.JPG

Fifteen years ago, New York City was changed forever when terrorists struck down the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. Almost 3,000 people lost their lives in the attacks and more than 6,000 people were injured. The tragedy of that day brought all of New York City together: the first responders, paramedics, firefighters, police officers, doctors, nurses, area businesses, co-workers, neighbors and strangers. NewYork-Presbyterian staff was called into action to help victims in the immediate aftermath of the attack, with four NYP EMS professionals sacrificing their lives that day to save others.Several NewYork-Presbyterian staff members came together to share their stories throughout the week.

BenjaminLuft11A.JPG

More than 10 years after 9/11, when thousands of rescue and recovery workers descended on the area surrounding the World Trade Center in the wake of the terrorist attacks, a research team led by Benjamin J. Luft, M.D., the Edmund D. Pellegrino Professor of Medicine, and Medical Director of Stony Brook’s World Trade Center Health Program, and Evelyn Bromet, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor, Departments of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science, and Preventive Medicine, Stony Brook University School of Medicine, has published results of a study examining the relationship between the two signature health problems among WTC first responders—respiratory illness and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
