ADAO’s 9th Annual International Asbestos Awareness Conference, “The Asbestos Crisis: New Trends in Prevention and Treatment” will be held on March 22 – 24, 2013 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA.   Our annual spring conference brings together renowned experts, global activists, and patients and families in a united forum to enhance asbestos awareness, education, treatment, and collaboration.

As Dr. Richard Lemen, ADAO Science Advisory Board Co-Chair, said, “The asbestos disease community is so diverse and so specialized that we all need to come together. We have so much to learn from each other. Nowhere but the ADAO conference can I find experts in so many different fields sharing the latest information. I wouldn’t miss it. I have been coming every year since the first one in 2005.”

New this year, ADAO will offer need-based scholarships to a limited number of patients and families to cover the cost of conference registration (which does not include travel and lodging costs). If interested in the scholarships, please e-mail

ADAO is excited to open registration in November!

Together, change is possible.
