There is a big public meeting tomorrow, March 28, 2012 of the 9/11 WTC Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC).  It is hoped that they will strongly support their initial draft report to NIOSH Director, John Howard, MD, which recommends inclusion of cancer among those illnesses covered under the Zadroga Act.  The teleconference meeting starts at 1:00pm and the dial-in phone number is 1-800-593-0693.  The pass code is: 4447238. 

See additional info here. Dial in if you want to learn which cancers may be covered.  We will report more after the hearing.
