WASHINGTON D.C. – On behalf of the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), we would like to thank all of our attendees, speakers, honorees, volunteers, sponsors, and supporters who participated in the 12th Annual International Asbestos Awareness and Prevention Conference! This year’s conference, “Where Knowledge and Action Unite,” held April 8 – 10, 2016 in Washington, DC, marked 12 years of ADAO’s leadership in raising asbestos awareness, spearheading advocacy efforts, and fostering our united community. The conference brought together medical, academic, occupational experts, asbestos victims, and friends of ADAO from nine countries to spread awareness about asbestos, clarify recent academic and legislative news, disseminate educational/preventative resources, and work towards a ban on asbestos. This year, we were honored to feature nearly 40 conference presenters, an Awards and Recognition Dinner, a Unity and Remembrance Brunch, and a Candle Light Vigil honoring and supporting all those touched by asbestos. ADAO’s campaign, “Hear Asbestos. Think Prevention.” was once again an underlying theme repeated again and again by conference attendees, mesothelioma warriors, and experts alike as their voices resonated in unison with a call for hazardous chemical regulation reform.
