The Associated Press interviews David Prezant, M.D., senior author, and Thomas Aldrich, M.D., lead author, on their study that investigates the lung health of 9/11 rescue workers. The research, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, was led by Einstein and Montefiore Medical Center, in collaboration with the Fire Department of New York City (FDNY). The study of nearly 13,000 FDNY rescue workers demonstrates that the significant proportion who suffered acute lung damage after exposure to World Trade Center dust have not recovered normal lung function since 2001. Drs. Prezant and Aldrich are both professors of medicine at Einstein and attending physicians in the pulmonary medicine division at Montefiore. Dr. Prezant is also chief medical officer at the FDNY.
