Registry’s Medical Director Explains Mortality Findings
Jim Cone, MD, Medical Director of the WTC Health Registry, explains the Registry’s initial mortality findings published by the Lancet in an online video interview. The ongoing study found that the death rate among enrollees living in New York City upon Registry enrollment was significantly lower than in the general NYC population during 2003-2009. However, non-rescue/recovery workers who were more highly exposed to the WTC disaster may be at an increased mortality risk, especially cardiac-related, in comparison to those less exposed.
