Lara Glass: Helping the Helpers – Assessing and Meeting the Healthcare Needs of 9/11 responders

Hear about the medical research and government response to New York’s bravest, the 9/11 first responders.
Lara Glass has been working with the World Trade Center Health Program for more than a decade. The Program provides medical monitoring and healthcare to 9/11 responders, and also engages in extensive research related to the health impacts of WTC exposures. She spent five years as Administrative Director of the FDNY WTC Program which focuses on caring for New York City Firefighters and Emergency Medical Services personnel.

Our speakers offer thoughts related to the philosophy of humanism or share their experiences and commitments in the struggle to foster peace, justice, economic fairness and racial and religious harmony. Everyone is invited to Sunday Platform meeting.
The Sunday School at the Ethical Culture Society of Bergen County helps children aged 2-14 explore and develop their moral and critical thinking skills through fun and interactive lessons and field trips. We meet weekly on Sundays for 1.5 hours while the adults of the Ethical Culture Society are attending the platform meeting. Our wide ranging curriculum allows kids to examine themselves, their community and the world in general. We teach about different cultures, philosophies and religions. We encourage our students to ask questions, think for themselves and make up their own minds about the bigger questions in life. Our children develop strong values and ethical standpoints. The Sunday School Graduation Rite of Passage, completed by our 8th graders, allows them to present to the community how their Sunday School experience has informed their moral and ethical development.
