This week on the award winning Sonstein Sunday:
Last year, after 37 years with the FDNY, Dr. Kerry Kelly retired as Chief Medical Officer. Dr. Kelly was there on 9/11 and immediately realized the health fallout that would follow. She was the first to develop a baseline health exam for New York City firefighters, with yearly follow-ups.
This medical detailing was instrumental in linking health issues to the 9/11 toxins, leading to the passage of the Zadroga Law, which provides health care and compensating for those ailing from 9/11 illnesses. Dr. Kelly has been described to me as the Florence Nightingale of the FDNY. I am so honored to have her join me and 9/11 attorney Michael Barasch at 6:55 AM.
And at 7:15am: The documentary “Roll Red Roll” is now open at The Film Forum. It centers on the first sexual assault detailed on social media, from plans to the aftermath. The victim was a Steubenville, Ohio high schooler at a party for a high school football team. Director Nancy Schwartzman joins to discuss.
Listen to me every Sunday at 6:55 am on Q104.3, or anytime, on my Sonstein Sessions podcast on the iHeartRadio app!
