The World Trade Center (WTC) Health Program is currently seeking nominees for its Scientific/Technical Advisory Committee (STAC). Six of the 17 STAC positions are open.

The WTC Health Program is administered by NIOSH and provides medical monitoring and treatment for responders at the WTC and related sites, as well as survivors who were in the New York City disaster area.

  • Physician with expertise in pulmonary medicine
  • Representative of WTC responders
  • Representative of certified-eligible WTC survivors

Appointments to the STAC may last up to 3 years. The STAC makes recommendations to the WTC Program Administrator on eligibility criteria and other health conditions based on scientific and medical evidence.

Nominations are due by November 16, 2018, and must include the following:

  • Complete contact information (telephone numbers, mailing address, e-mail address)
