Inside Mount Sinai

In this issue:

This issue includes a special 9/11 section that reflects a recent collaboration between the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (NYCOSH) to record the profiles of responders in Mount Sinai’s World Trade Center Health Program and document their ongoing illnesses.

  • An overview of Mount Sinai’s World Trade Center Health (WTC) Program and its role in providing treatment to thousands of responders and survivors, with an accompanying photo of Michael Crane, MD, MPH, Philip Landrigan, MD, and Robert Wright, MD, MPH.
  • Profiles of four responders in Mount Sinai’s WTC Health Program, including their first-hand accounts of working at ground zero, and the current state of their health.
  • The Center for Excellence in Youth Education (CEYE) recently wrapped up its 40th summer at Mount Sinai with a group of motivated students who participated in research and clinical internships.
  • Around the Health System: The Division of Nephrology at The Mount Sinai Hospital opens a new kidney center; New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai provides free vision screenings to senior citizens in Brooklyn; and Mount Sinai patient Robert Woo is the first person certified to use the ReWalk exoskeleton at home.
