News Conference - MONDAY, September 8th at 10:00 a.m.


Reps. Maloney, Nadler Urge Action to Protect Health of

9-11 Responders from Around the Country Health



New York, NY – On Monday, September 8th at 10:00 a.m., U.S. Representatives Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), Jerrold L. Nadler (D-NY), will hold a news conference to express their concerns about ongoing delays in the federal government’s program to provide health care to 9/11 responders and others sickened by the attacks who live outside the New York metropolitan area.



In June, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) awarded a contract to Logistics Health Incorporated (LHI), a Wisconsin firm run by former HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson, to coordinate 9/11 medical monitoring and treatment services nationwide. On September 4th, Representatives Maloney, Nadler and Fossella sent a letter to HHS Secretary Michael Leavitt noting that LHI’s monitoring exams have not yet begun as orginally promised; that many, if not most, responders eligible for the program have yet to receive any information from LHI; and that sick responders are experiencing significant delays in getting appointments arranged, prescriptions filled, and phone calls returned.





WHO: U.S. Representatives Carolyn B. Maloney, Jerrold L. Nadler



WHAT: Protesting the U.S. government’s delays and inaction in meeting the health care needs of 9/11 responders from outside the New York metropolitan region



WHEN: Monday, September 8th at 10:00 a.m



WHERE: In front of 7 World Trade Center, Greenwich & Vesey Streets, Lower Manhattan
