Project Duration
5 year


SARS-CoV-2 infection causes potentially deadly disease called COVID-19, which has severely affected aging and vulnerable populations in the United States and around the world, possibly leading to serious long-term health effects among survivors. This project will evaluate risk factors for COVID-19 severity and assess the long-term health outcomes of COVID-19 among World Trade Center responders – an aging population with high prevalence of respiratory and pulmonary conditions, and occupational risk factors. The results of this study will contribute to understanding the impact of genetic factors, toxic environmental exposures, occupational factors and preexisting conditions on the course and long-term effects of COVID-19.
