9/11 Environmental Action and pediatric specialists from the World Trade Center Environmental Health Center at Bellevue Hospital invite you to a forum with an important update on where we stand on treating the health effects of 9/11. Symptoms, diagnosis and treatment as well as options for care available to downtown children and teens as part of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act will be discussed. Children of 9/11 responders with emotional or physical 9/11-related health impacts are eligible for care. Responders whose children may have been affected are invited. Chinese and Spanish translation will be available at the event.

This event is sponsored by 9/11 Environmental Action - a recipient of a grant from the WTC Environmental Health Center of the NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation to raise awareness of 9/11 health issues and options for treatment among parents of school age children and young adults.

The first in a series of Legal Forums on the James Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Law was held on March 20th at Queens College. Several more forums will be sponsored by the FealGood Foundation with the goal of helping those impacted by the legislation to learn more about it before it opens for filing.
