17th Annual Day of Remembrance
Information Forum
Marriott Downtown Hotel | 85 West Street | New York City
Registration Opens: 8:00 am | Program: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us on Monday, September 10 for VOICES 17th Annual Information Forum, a day-long program with insightful presentations, panel discussions and peer-to-peer opportunities designed to promote healing and resilience. The event provides an opportunity for 9/11 families, survivors, responders and those who continue to support them to gather for an informative program in advance of the anniversary. Family members of those who have died of 9/11-related illnesses are encouraged to attend.
Updates will be provided on the WTC Health Program medical and mental health treatment and research, the WTC Registry, and victims’ compensation programs. Other topics include: strategies for coping with grief and bereavement; caring for caregivers; and interventions to promote long-term growth and resiliency of children and families.
A special panel, moderated by Mike Greenberg journalist and host of ESPN’s morning show Get Up, will highlight the Comeback Season exhibit that recently opened at the 9/11 Museum. The Information Forum presentations will conclude with peer-to-peer roundtables and mindfulness exercises. The 9/11 Museum is providing complimentary tickets for those who would like to visit the Museum following the program.
VOICES is honored to once again host this annual event with the support of the Centers for Disease Control and the Feal Good Foundation. We are also grateful for the contribution of our co-sponsors and the professionals who have dedicated their careers to supporting the 9/11 community.
The event is free of charge for 9/11 families, survivors, responders, their extended family members and WTC Health Program service providers. Family members of those who have died of 9/11 related illnesses are encouraged to attend.
