The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), an organization dedicated to serving as the voice of asbestos victims, today announced the launch of its free online Asbestos Video Library (AVL). The unique library features five channels that will enable victims, concerned Americans, the science community and Congress to access cutting edge asbestos information about prevention, detection and treatment of asbestos.
The AVL provides asbestos victims with the chance to interact with each other as well as professionals specializing in asbestos-related diseases. In addition, it will keep viewers up-to-date on the latest developments on asbestos-related diseases and provide a forum for interactions that do not exist elsewhere. Treatment options and new developments will continually be updated on the Asbestos Video Library.
“We are excited with this new ADAO educational program for outreach and are sure that this will advance the awareness of asbestos-related disease and allow a mechanism for support to those hard-to-answer questions,” said Dr. Richard Lemen, Science Advisory Co-Chairman, ADAO, and a former Assistant Surgeon General of the United States Public Health Service. “ADAO remains committed to preventing deadly asbestos exposures and to the elimination of these incurable asbestos caused diseases.”
“Asbestos education will save lives,” said Linda Reinstein, ADAO Executive Director, Cofounder, and mesothelioma widow. “We can’t bring back our loved ones, but with education, we can spare others from the pain, trauma and devastation that victims and families experience around the world. The AVL can also be used as a resource for stimulating interactions between families affected by asbestos-related diseases as well as finding professionals to talk to within their search for information.”
The library contains several helpful topics for asbestos victims, including:
* Asbestos diseases and policies affecting their prevention and treatment
* Physician information and contacts
* Patient information and contacts
* Sources of exposure and methods for avoiding such exposures
* Updated asbestos conference information
The free Asbestos Video Library can be accessed online at www.asbestosdiseaseawareness.org.
