The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization announced that the organization’s executive director and co-founder, Linda Reinstein, will keynote the 25th Anniversary and Exposition of the Environmental Information Association (EIA). Reinstein will speak about the dangers of asbestos and its effects on the community and discuss product testing that discovered asbestos in children’s toys and consumer products including the CSI Fingerprint Examination Kit.
The EIA, with its beginnings as the National Asbestos Council, has spent 25 years at the forefront in providing the environmental industry with the information needed to remain knowledgeable, responsible, and competitive in the environmental health and safety industry. The association’s multi-disciplinary membership will collect, generate and disseminate information concerning environmental health hazards to occupants of buildings, industrial sites and other facility operations.
“I am honored to speak at the 25th Anniversary and Exposition of the EIA,” said Reinstein. “The title of my speech ‘Turning Anger to Action’ says it all. Although we are angry that our loved ones are still being exposed to deadly asbestos fibers, we realize that we can take a stand and prevent it from harming our loved ones in the future. We will fight this battle until the end, and together we will get this fatal substance banned from our nation forever.”
The occurrence of asbestos-related diseases, including mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis, is growing out of control. Studies estimate that during the next decade, 100,000 victims in the United States will die of an asbestos related disease – equaling 30 deaths per day. Reinstein will speak at the 25th Anniversary Conference and Exposition on Wednesday, March 19 in the Sandia Ballroom V at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Albuquerque, NM.
Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) was founded by asbestos victims and their families in 2004. ADAO seeks to give asbestos victims a united voice to help ensure that their rights are fairly represented and protected, and raise public awareness about the dangers of asbestos exposure and the often deadly asbestos related diseases. ADAO is funded through voluntary contributions and staffed by volunteers. For more information visit http://www.asbestosdiseaseawareness.org.
