NYC Issues 9/11 Medical Guidelines

Article in today's Washington Post -- NYC Issues 9/11 Medical Guidelines, by Devlin Barrett:

    New York City health officials issued long-awaited guidelines Thursday to help
    doctors detect and treat 9/11-related illnesses _ medical advice considered crucial
    for hundreds of ground zero workers now scattered across the United States.

    The New York City Health Department had previously offered instructions for treating
    post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse and mental illness resulting from Sept. 11      
    experiences. But health experts, advocates and politicians complained the city had shelved         
    instructions on how to treat the physical ailments of Sept. 11.
