New Video & Brochure Launches Outreach Campaign at WTC Environmental Health Center
January 22, 2008
The World Trade Center (WTC) Environmental Health Center has begun a major outreach campaign to ensure that eligible individuals are aware of this free treatment program. As part of the campaign, the WTC Environmental Health Center produced a seven-minute video available in English, Chinese, Spanish and Polish. Through interviews with people who currently are in treatment at the WTC Environmental Health Center, the video helps the local community better understand how the collapse of the World Trade Center may have affected their health and provides information about the multilingual treatment options available to those who now are experiencing symptoms.
In addition, nearly 100,000 copies of a preliminary program brochure have been ordered by more than 50 organizations including community-based groups, municipal labor unions, housing complexes and local community boards for distribution to the public. Also available in four languages, the brochure, which will be revised over time, answers basic questions about 9/11-related health issues, including what to expect when an appointment has been scheduled at any of three WTC Environmental Health Center locations in Lower Manhattan and Queens.
During the next several weeks, the WTC Environmental Health Center will be working with members of its Community Advisory Committee to develop additional outreach activities.
