Health concerns for reporters who worked at Ground Zero

For journalists who reported from Lower Manhattan or Ground Zero during September 2001, they may or may not have health concerns resulting from their experiences there. Below is a brief someone sent me. If it applies to you then you might consider giving Mr. Handschuh a call or drop him a line.

9/11 Aftermath
New York Daily News photographer (and three-time Pulitzer nominee - but who's counting?) David Handschuh is trying to find journalists who have suffered - or fear they will suffer - health problems because of exposure to the World Trade Center site after the 2001 terrorist attacks. Handschuh is fighting to have journalists added to those groups eligible to file workers compensation claims with the state of New York . Questions? Handschuh invites you to contact him at or (212) 210-2344.
