The World Trade Center health registry has passed the 40,000 member mark, making it the largest public health registry in U.S. history.

Health officials are hoping even more people will sign up in the next 10 weeks before enrollment ends.

The registry was launched last September to try and track the long term medical and psychological effects of 9/11.

Registrants are asked to complete a 30-minute phone interview in which they are asked where they were on September 11th, how long they were in areas with smoke and fumes, and if they've had health problems since.
