Asbestos education slideshow available from ADAO

24 May 2012 by under Organizations

The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) has made an educational slideshow titled “Asbestos – See for Yourself” available online. The slides feature striking images of actual asbestos fibers, as well as products that contain asbestos or historical products that used to be made with asbestos. The slideshow is concluded with a short video.

The photographic educational campaign was created to promote asbestos awareness week, April 1-7, but it is available as a resource online anytime. Additionally, there is a sidebar featuring links to a wealth of other slideshow presentations providing information about asbestos, many of them compiled by experts.

The mission of ADAO is trifold – Advocacy, Community, and . The organization was founded by Linda Reinstein and Doug Larkin on April 1, 2004. Its mission is global in nature, dedicated to preventing asbestos-related diseases by encouraging a worldwide ban of asbestos, creating a network of support for asbestos victims, their families and caregivers; educating the public about the dangers of asbestos, and supporting research for detection, treatment and an eventual cure for asbestos diseases.

     Thanks for this article. I was reasearching for information about asbestos and mesothelioma since my grandfather was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma. I guess that’s his reward for 40 years of working in construction. We took legal action and are currently working with Flood Law Group, LLP. I would recomend that course of action for all patients with  mesothelioma, asbestosis or another type of asbestos-caused illness
