Brooklyn) and Civil Rights Attorney Norman Siegel will join a group of 9/11 emergency first responders in a press conference to release a letter sent to NYS Health Commissioner Richard F. Daines, M.D. The letter urges Commissioner Daines to use his authority to review and override any 9/11 related death certificates that fail to classify properly the cause of death as attributable to injuries sustained as a result of the attack on the WorldTradeCenter.
