“As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation―either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course.”

― Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Fostering and sustaining the legacy of 9/11 responders is a crucial part of our work at the Stony Brook WTC Wellness program. While providing the best possible care is essential, our education and outreach arm makes sure:

♦ Responders not yet enrolled in the WTC Health Program know covered healthcare is available to them and how to access it

♦ Our local communities have access to education about 9/11 and its consequences

By providing educational resources and firsthand accounts from responders and engaging with the community at large, we strive to help all people feel invested in our clinical work, research, and special programs. We offer programming at public events, high schools, and libraries, and have even developed a course that has been taught several times at Stony Brook University School of Medicine. The documentary, 9/11: An American Requiem, and the nonfiction book, We’re Not Leaving, are the pillars of these programs.

Our responders participate in these efforts as well, speaking about their experiences through our oral history program, at events, and more. We’ve found that personal empowerment and ownership of one’s story can be valuable tools in the healing process, and we strive to create and support such opportunities at every turn. Our work in this arena presses on, as we continue to discover new avenues of creative expression.
