ADAO is excited to present the full video collection of our 12th Annual International Asbestos Awareness and Prevention Conference. Every presentation and event during the 3-day event was live streamed and videotaped so that the education and community fostered at the conference could be shared globally with those who weren’t able to attend the event in person.
This year’s conference, “Where Knowledge and Action Unite,” was held April 8 – 10, 2016 in Washington, DC, marked 12 years of ADAO’s leadership in raising asbestos awareness, spearheading advocacy efforts, and fostering our united community. The conference brought together medical, academic, occupational experts, asbestos victims, family and friends of ADAO from nine countries to spread awareness about asbestos, clarify recent academic and legislative news, disseminate educational/preventative resources, and work towards a ban on asbestos.
We are so proud and thankful for all of our experts and community members who made this amazing conference possible – your voices, stories, support and willpower inspire us daily and make our work and this event possible. And a special thanks to all of our 2016 Sponsors that made this and other ADAO efforts possible! We’d like to extend special thanks to ADAO’s Executive Assistant Herman Hamilton, who spends endless hours getting these videos online and accessible to our global community.
You can access all of the conference videos in two ways. Either by going to our 2016 Asbestos Awareness and Prevention Conference Agenda link or viewing our 2016 YouTube Conference Video Library. Clicking on each speaker or event will bring you to the corresponding video. If you explore within our video library, you can find great footage dating back to our 2007 conference.
Here’s what 2016 ADAO conference attendees are saying:
“The conference was wonderful. What I liked best were the interesting, caring, and highly motivated people I met.” Paul Brodeur
“I get to go to a lot of meetings every year but on a personal note ADAO”s conference is a highlight of my year. These conferences bring together all of the perspectives regarding the issue of asbestos-science, public policy, and the impact on families.” Dr. Arthur Frank
“The 12th Annual ADAO Asbestos Conference brought together a powerful collection of voices of the victims, their families, the medical and technical experts and others fighting for an end to the 100 year-old asbestos tragedy. The most inspiring and informative conference I’ve attended this year!” Mark Catlin
We look forward to another fabulous conference in 2017.
