President's Message

We are excited to welcome April, even though March was an incredible month for ADAO! We kicked it into high gear by announcing our 16th Annual International Asbestos Awareness and Prevention Conference will be held virtually on September 18th! Registration opens in May.

Thanks to many, the U.S. Senate passed our 16th Resolution designating April 1 - 7 as National Asbestos Awareness Week. Special thanks to Sen. Tester for championing the Resolution again for Montana and the Nation. 

Global Asbestos Awareness Week (GAAW) is dedicated to education, awareness and prevention. Each day features educational resources from leading organizations and experts, videos from our partners, and asbestos victims’ stories. Many materials are translated into Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Hindi to expand global education. Join the global conversation by using hashtag: #2021GAAW. 

Our ninth Zoom conversation with asbestos experts from our Science Advisory Board
was an international success and the video is featured below.  

The Senate also confirmed a new Surgeon General, Secretary of Health and Human Services, and Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, all of whom can help us end asbestos imports and use once and for all. 

Our work is made possible by our generous sponsors and donors. Thanks to our 2021 Platinum sponsor Simmons Hanly Conroy and Silver sponsor Early, Lucarelli, Sweeney & Meisenkothen. There are limited 2021 sponsorship opportunities which will be finalized on April 30th. ADAO is the only independent nonprofit dedicated to education, advocacy, and community efforts to prevent asbestos exposure to eliminate all asbestos-caused diseases. Please contact me if you are interested in supporting ADAO’s important education, advocacy, community efforts, including our conference.

Together, we make change happen.
