On March 16, 2018, FDNY Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kerry Kelly retired after 37 years of dedicated service. The FDNY has set the standard for monitoring the health and well-being of its members and Dr. Kelly was instrumental in getting that done. Dr. Kelly began the FDNY program of Annual Medicals, which is a yearly medical examination that became even more essential after 9/11. Because the FDNY performed yearly medical exams on all first responders, this Department had the baselines that helped illustrate (and actually prove in some circles) that 9/11 debris and dust did impact the health of first responders. Hear more about this and Dr. Kelly’s background and experiences in this episode. Chief of Staff Elizabeth Cascio hosts.
