Join the World Trade Center (WTC) Health Program for the first ever Research to Care Community Engagement event! This free, interactive, one-day event is a unique opportunity to hear about new developments in 9/11 health research and learn how to maintain good health.

Join us in the morning to hear from Dr. John Howard, the WTC Health Program Administrator and leading researchers about the health effects from the 9/11 attacks, and stay for the afternoon to participate in small group discussions about various health topics. This is an opportunity to ask researchers how their findings impact your health and other questions about the 9/11 health effects.
