Every Resident’s Survey Counts!

Lower Manhattan residents enrolled in the World Trade Center Health Registry are encouraged to complete their 2011-12 health survey. Residents’ responses will help the city’s Department of Health understand the long-term health impacts and plan for 9/11-related health care needs.

All Registry enrollees have been sent a survey by mail or email, according to Marcus Liem, public affairs liaison of the W.T.C. Health Registry. The D.O.H. asks that enrollees take about 20 minutes to complete the survey.

“This is your opportunity to provide an update on your physical and mental health 10 years after 9/11; your answers are important regardless of whether or not you are currently experiencing symptoms,” according to Liem. “We can’t continue this important work without a high level of your participation.”

Data collection ends in March 2012.
