Jamie Lassner joins the show! He tells Dr. Cohen about working as an EMT on September 11th (9:30 minute mark) and witnessing the second plane hit the World Trade Center. He also explains why it was difficult to accept that he was suffering from PTSD after the terrorist attacks, and how his family finally encouraged him to seek treatment.
Then, Jamie tells us about the volunteer work he does now (31 minute mark), which includes working with Alan T. Brown and the Accessibility Accelerator organization to take people with disabilities to the top of Kilimanjaro. He also tells us about working in Ukraine to help people with disabilities evacuate and find safe housing.
