9/11: 16 Years Later

Gregory Fried, M.D., former Executive Chief Surgeon of the NYPD, shares his behind the scene view of life on the force during one of the worst crime waves in the city’s history; when criminals declared open season on officers.  His mission is to share stories of the brave officers who became his inspirational patients as their fight against crime turned into battles for their lives when injured in the line of duty. Fast forward to 2001 as he recounts his own tragedy as a first responder on 9/11 when Tower 2 collapsed, nearly crushing him to death.

Dr. Fried shared a candid, insider’s view of the event that changed history. During this event, Dr. Fried shared

  • how the world changed forever, 16 years ago.
