World Trade Center Registry - NYC Department of Health and Menatl Hygiene
Dr. Stellman is Research Director for The World Trade Center Health Registry, a cohort study of over 71,000 community residents, office workers, rescue and recovery workers, and other individuals directly exposed to the collapse and aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The original cohort was interviewed by phone in 2003-04. Re-surveys in 2007-08 and 2011-12 have provided health updates and linkage to the National Death Index and state cancer registries are used to determine mortality and cancer incidence. The Registry has been the source of numerous publications and much of the Registry data are open to the public on-line.
