To mark the Museum’s annual commemoration of the end of the nine-month rescue and recovery effort at Ground Zero, Dr. Kerry Kelly, who served as chief medical officer for the FDNY (1994–2018) and was herself a 9/11 first responder, speaks about the FDNY’s response to the physical and psychological needs of its members following the 9/11 attacks, and the strides made in the treatment and monitoring of first responders. Dr. Kelly, who maintains a family practice on Staten Island, continues to be involved with the WTC Health Program which provides medical services for responders who suffer from 9/11-related illnesses. She is also now focused on the impact of COVID-19 in her community.
