Excerpt from Time Magazine
…”Before you decide to believe or, worse, forward an e-mail with serious health claims, do a little checking….Then go to reliable health sites, like…
www.medhelp.org(especially good for cardiology)….Otherwise, you might get caught in a web of confusion.”

National Jewish Medical & Research Center
*Ranked the #1 hospital in America for treatment of respiratory disorders
After the attacks on the World Trade Center in September of 2001, Med Help International contacted National Jewish Medical & Research Center in Denver, Colorado to ask for their help. Together, we created an online Respiratory Disorders Forum.
The first goal of this forum was to offer the NYC rescue workers a safe & reliable place to ask their questions about how to protect themselves against the toxic particles in the air at “ground zero”. We have worked closely with both the NYC Fire Department and the Manhattan Borough President’s Office, to insure that the rescue workers have the best information and equipment available to protect their respiratory health.
The Respiratory Disorders Forum is now open to the general public, where medical professionals from National Jewish Medical & Research Center answer new questions, daily.
