11th Annual ADAO International Asbestos Awareness Conference
“Where Knowledge and Action Unite”
April 17 – 19, 2015
Posted on February 4, 2015
ADAO is excited to announce the new International Asbestos Awareness Conference Scholarships! Thanks to the generosity of many, we are pleased to announce that – for the first time – we will be offering a handful of need-based conference scholarships to victims, family members, and occupational health students and workers. The expense of just hosting Saturday’s academic portion of the conference as well as Sunday’s Brunch totals more than $175 per person. This scholarship provides a great opportunity to those who otherwise could not afford to join asbestos experts, victims, and activists from around the world at the 11th Annual International Asbestos Awareness Conference.
Three types of scholarships are being offered this year:
- Patients & Relatives Scholarship Information
- Workers Scholarship Information
- MPH/Student Scholarship Information
To apply for any of these three opportunities, please fill out the single Scholarship Application Form, including a brief statement (250-300 words) about how you’d use what you learn at the conference to drive asbestos awareness and prevention through education, advocacy, and/or community support. Please email this form to Scholarships@asbestosdiseaseawareness.org by March 1, 2015. Applications will be selected by a review board comprised of Linda Reinstein (President/CEO of ADAO, Redondo Beach, CA), Mark Catlin (Occupational Health and Safety Director with the Service Employees International Union, Washington, DC), and Celeste Monforton (George Washington University School of Public Health & Health Services, Washington, DC) based on eligibility and need. Scholarship recipients will be notified by March 15, 2015.
Thank you to our partners for their support of our new scholarship program! We look forward to the opportunity to share this momentous event with our first class of International Asbestos Awareness Conference Scholars!
