The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), which combines education, advocacy, and community to provide a unified voice for asbestos victims, today announced Global Asbestos Awareness Week (GAAW), "E X P O S E D - The Facts about Asbestos" April 1 - 7, 2011.
Global Asbestos Awareness Week was created to raise awareness about the dangers of asbestos helping in order to prevent asbestos-caused diseases. We are striving for a unified voice throughout the world over the course of seven days: Asbestos: One Word. One Week. One World. International experts, advocates, and victims will share how asbestos impacts the citizens of the world and how it truly has no boundaries. Guest writers from Canada, Mexico, Japan, South America, India, UK, and beyond will continue to open our eyes to the devastating wake that asbestos is leaving behind.
The week coincides with ADAO's 7th Annual Global Asbestos Awareness Conference with the 7th Annual Asbestos Awareness Conference (April 1 - 3, 2011 in Atlanta, Georgia) which brings leading international experts together to discuss the impact of asbestos on public health, the environment, and the economy.
