Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization Conference 2009
Our firm is proud to be a $10,000 Educational Tribute sponsor of the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization’s 5th Annual International Asbestos Awareness Conference held this year on March 27-29 in Manhattan Beach, California. ADAO is the nation’s leading advocacy group for asbestos victims and by far the most highly respected for its work in seeking an American and worldwide ban on the use of asbestos, better protection for asbestos-exposed workers and their families, and appropriate legal protection for their rights and interests.
This month’s conference will provide education and outreach to families, scientists, and workers from around the world as part of ADAO’s effort to educate the public about the dangers of asbestos, ban its use, and encourage research efforts to improve treatment options. Physicians, scientists, safety and health care professionals, and advocates from around the world will discuss the status of asbestos globally.
The conference will include workshops on prevention of asbestos disease, improving occupational safety and health, and preventing asbestos exposure at home.
The keynote speaker will be Pulitzer Prize Journalist Andrew Schneider. The program will honor U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, Margaret Seminario, Director of Safety and Health of the AFL/CIO, Stephen Levin, M.D. of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Pralhad Malvadkar from the Occupational Health and Safety Center in Mumbai, India, and Raghunath Manwar, Secretary of the Occupational Health and Safety Association in Gujarat, India, for their work over the years on behalf of asbestos victims. It has been our pleasure and privilege to work with ADAO’s Executive Director Linda Reinstein, Project Manager and Mesothelioma Survivor Paul Zygielbaum, and other members of its leadership group. We remain committed to working with ADAO to protect the rights of existing asbestos victims and prevent the creation of future victims.
