9/11 20th Anniversary Commemoration Event: 20 Years of Healing Our Heroes
September 11, 2021 marks the milestone of the 20th anniversary of the attacks at the World Trade Center in New York, The Pentagon, and UA Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pa. Since 2003, The World Trade Center Clinical Center at Rutgers has had the honor of serving the 9/11 responders of the WTC terrorist attacks by providing treatment and health monitoring services housed within the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute (EOHSI) at Rutgers University. Our staff provides care at no charge to several thousands of WTC responders each year, offering services for 9/11-related physical and mental health conditions. The Rutgers program assists responders from police and firefighters to telephone linemen, construction workers, crane operators, ironworkers, and numerous other professions.
On Friday, September 10, 2021, EOHSI will host a 9/11 20th Anniversary Commemoration Event: 20 Years of Healing Our Heroes to honor the almost 3,000 people lost that day and all the responders, many now in our care as they suffer from WTC-related illnesses. We hope to underscore this solemn day with activities that emphasize healing and resilience such as wellness activities, and speeches from our members, as well as memorialize the fallen and acknowledge and support our heroes.
We welcome the whole Rutgers Community to watch live beginning at 10am as University President Dr. Jonathan Holloway, Rutgers EOHSI clinic staff, and 9/11 responders commemorate the September 11th events and say thank you to responders who participated in the largest rescue recovery effort in the history of our great nation 20 years ago.
