S3, E29 Annual Medicals – A Lasting Impact with FDNY Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kerry Kelly


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.
