Brooklyn opens clinic to treat victims of 9/11-related illnesses
A clinic to treat victims suffering from 9/11-related illnesses more than a decade after the attacks opened in Brooklyn today.
While there have been other 9/11 responder clinics throughout the city, this is the first 9/11 responders clinic to open in Brooklyn.
The center is located on the SUNY Downstate campus at 760 Parkside Ave.
The clinic was developed out of a partnership between SUNY Downstate and Stony Brook University's Long Island Clinical Center.
A physician who spoke to News 12 Brooklyn said that firefighters, policemen, construction workers and volunteers who aided in the post 9/11 cleanup, will be able to come to the clinic for a medical and psychological evaluation.
