August was a busy month for us here at the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization, and we are even more excited about what lies ahead in September!
Success. Last week, we held our 14th Congressional Staff Briefing titled "
Impact of Asbestos on Public Health, Environment, and Economy
" which brought together almost 60 staffers from nearly 30 states. Thanks to our esteemed panel of speakers, Dr. Raja Flores, Patrick Morrison, Mike Mattmuller, and Bob Sussman, we shared the irrefutable facts, new mortality data, and ADAO's newly published Chlor-Alkali Industry report detailing raw asbestos imports and the production of industrial chlorine and caustic soda.
ADAO is honored to present at the
2019 OSHAfrica conference
later this month and expand collaborative occupational safety and health efforts with the WHO, IOSH, ICOH, and many others.
This September we will take part in the
Mesothelioma Awareness Month,
with Mesothelioma Awareness Day falling on September 26. Join us -- there are many ways to raise awareness, honor or remember a Warrior throughout the month of September, and share time with the community.
Here are three ways:
