Health and Wellness Study

Clinically, we found patients with comorbid illness to be recalcitrant to standard treatment.  Our clinical observations led us to ask important questions regarding the relationship of the PTSD and aerodigestive conditions. Thus was borne the Health & Wellness Study—a project aimed at uncovering the mechanisms driving these chronic, comorbid mental and physical health conditions.

Through the Health & Wellness study research, we uncovered an important link between PTSD and respiratory illness in our population.  Currently, we are exploring this link through epigenetic and genetic studies.   Implementing an ecological model has help re-organize our thinking about 9/11 health conditions, including what questions we ask and attempt to answer through our research studies. 

Understanding how the ramifications of 9/11 affects responders allows us to continuously adapt our model of care, finding novel approaches and making better-informed decisions about necessary treatments.
