Bring Back the Czar!!

Monday, February 23, 2009

For an event about people made ill by exposure to the World Trade Center, you had to wonder if exposure to the blistering cold today, outside the World Trade Center might not be the healthiest undertaking, either.

New York Representatives Carol Maloney and Jerrold Nadler held a news conference in front of WTC-7, calling on the Obama administration to re-appoint Dr. John Howard as “9/11 Health Czar.” Howard was head of the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, when President Bush in 2006 asked him to coordinate 9/11 the disparate screening and treatment programs. Howard was much respected by the advocacy community for pushing to expand funding and programming, even as the Bush administration largely opposed those efforts. Last summer, when Howard’s term as NIOSH head expired, he was not reappointed. He is currently working in a different division of NIOSH’s parent agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – and not taking media requests for interviews.
