Saturday, September 10, 2016
Marriott Downtown Hotel
85 West Street
New York City
VOICES hosted our 15th Annual Day of Remembrance Information Forum on the eve of this milestone anniversary. The day-long event provided an opportunity for 9/11 families, responders, survivors and those who supported them to gather together as a community. This year, we are especially honored that Dr. Charles Figley and Dr. Kathy Regan Figley presented the keynote address, "Building Resilience to Compassion Fatigue."
The program included presentations, panel discussions and round-table conversations to promote healing and resilience in their lives. Topics include the World Trade Center Health Program, building resilience, interfaith response, identifying unmet needs, advocacy efforts, and effective interventions to address the long-term growth and recovery of children and families.
VOICES is honored to once again host this annual event bringing together the 9/11 community – both those who were affected and the dedicated professionals with expertise in the fields of mental health, law, occupational health and medicine who have provided support and services over the years.
Thank you to all who participated!
