Project Duration
5 year


Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can increase risk of esophageal adenocarcinoma, increase need for medication, negatively impact quality of life (QOL) and is among the most common conditions in World Trade Center (WTC) first responders. Lifestyle modification is an effective first-line therapy for GERD, yet patients rarely receive adequate counseling to maximize needed behavioral change. This study will evaluate a formal evidence-based Lifestyle Medicine (LM) Program for WTC first responders interested in reducing symptoms and/or medication use related to GERD.
