A Topical Collection on 9/11 health, in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, is being organized. For detailed information on the journal, I refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph). The 9/11 World Trade Center disaster exposed hundreds of thousands of area workers, residents, students, and school staff (survivors) and rescue and recovery workers (responders) to acute trauma, as well as a complex mixture of dust, gases, and debris from the collapse and intense psychological stress. Researchers and clinicians have been looking to better understand the immediate and long-term consequences of the disaster to help identify interventions to decrease the future impact of this event. This Topical Collection is open for submission of manuscripts on the subject area of 9/11 health. The keywords below provide an outline of some of the possible areas of interest.
