November 3, 2011 – The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) Co-Founder and President, Linda Reinstein, is providing a public voice for the victims of Mesothelioma and their families. She recently presented at one significant public health and advocacy event and is scheduled to speak at another. At the American Public Health Association’s 139th Annual Meeting and Exposition on October 29 through November 2, 2011, Ms. Reinstein presented the latest information on asbestos awareness and asbestos ban efforts across the globe, highlighting the power of social media as a unifying force for worldwide connections and the power of knowledge. She will present her important message again at the Canadian Workers Health and Safety Centre’s annual gala on November 4th.
The ADAO’s mission “includes supporting global advocacy and advancing asbestos awareness, prevention, early detection, treatment, and resources for asbestos-related disease.” Ms. Reinstein regularly speaks at health and environmental forums in support of the ADAO’s efforts to educate the public about the need for an asbestos ban, to promote recognition of medical resources, and to build a global community of support and comfort. The ADAO’s recent web live-streaming of the documentary “Breathtaking” about one family’s struggle with mesothelioma was an example of its efforts to use social media to combine education, advocacy, and community to provide a unified voice for asbestos victims. The Shein Law is a proud supporter of the ADAO.
