9/11 Assistance Program
About My Campaign
Your gift to the 9/11 Assistance Program will support additional services and programs for World Trade Center Responders to improve quality of life.
WTC Responders Continue to Fight the Effects of 9/11
NYU Langone is dedicated to providing care to World Trade Center (WTC) responders as one of seven Clinical Centers of Excellence in the WTC Health Program. The WTC Health Program is a federal program established by the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010 and is administered by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Patients at the NYU Clinical Center of Excellence receive no-cost medical monitoring, screenings, mental health evaluation and treatment, and support for specific 9/11-related medical and mental health conditions. However, the WTC Health Program does not cover every condition or treatment.
Your Help Will Make a Difference
Improving the quality of life of our patients while providing integrated and comprehensive care is the aim of the NYU Clinical Center of Excellence. Our clinicians and staff ensure that our work revolves in compassionate, patient-centered care. We envision the ability to fund initiatives that will eliminate barriers to care, close the gaps to access and ensure that our patients are able to maintain their best health.
Your gift will enable us to support programs, treatment and research that are otherwise not funded by the WTC Health Program. We aim to establish wellness programs which include services that our clinicians have deemed necessary and/or complementary to our patients’ care. Some examples are wellness groups, nutrition programming, acupuncture, yoga, and other services not covered by the WTC Health Program.
