NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 10, 2021--

On a day as clear and crisp as it was just before the 9/11 attacks 20 years ago, patients from Northwell Health’s World Trade Center (WTC) Health Program and the medical experts who treat them gathered today in the shadow of One World Trade Center. The men and women shared memories from that terrifying day and from the work they performed at Ground Zero for several weeks after – but also discussed their hope for the future as they continue to fight the long-term health effects that resulted from the WTC collapse.
