ADAO is proud to present its yearly Academic Conference, held during ADAO’s 17th Annual International Asbestos Awareness and Prevention Virtual Conference on Saturday, September 17th, 2022 from 9am to 4pm ET. We are excited to highlight the many asbestos prevention advocates and experts as we gather to promote awareness and action during this year’s events.

The conference will be held at Emory University and streamed via Zoom to audiences across the globe. Our yearly conference is a place to come together as a world-wide community and feature these expert speakers, victims’ stories, and art advocacy movements. ADAO is the only U.S. nonprofit that organizes annual conferences dedicated to preventing asbestos exposure and eliminating asbestos-caused diseases. See this year’s schedule below. 

  • Session I: Progress and Challenges from the Frontline
  • Session II: Medical Advancements: Diagnosing and Treating Mesothelioma and Other Asbestos-Related Diseases
  • The Andrew Schneider Memorial Lecture
  • Session III: Prevention: Legacy Asbestos: What Is It? Where Is It? What Do I Do?
