Barasch McGarry, the Only Law Firm Represented at Research to Care: WTC Health Program Community Engagement Event
In the afternoon, those in attendance were able to speak with researchers and clinicians in small group discussions focused on various health topics. Mr. Barasch took this opportunity to express his concern that the Health Program did not always include a full-body scan for skin cancer, one of the most prevalent cancers that has affected those who were in the exposure zone. If you have not gotten checked for skin cancer, please do so!
Mr. Barasch also asked the Health Program to do a better job helping downtown office workers and residents. They are often forced wait many months for an appointment and even longer to have their WTC illnesses certified. First responders get their exams and certification must faster. This is unacceptable!
