The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), which serves as a global leader in ending asbestos exposure through education, advocacy, and community, today announced that ADAO will join leading public health professionals at the 143rd American Public Health Association’s Annual Meeting and Exposition in Chicago, Illinois from November 1 – 4.

On November 4th, ADAO President and Co-founder Linda Reinstein will join a renowned panel of experts during a comprehensive session focused on New approaches to identifying and addressing health hazards. Ms. Reinstein’s presentation, Asbestos Public Health Campaigns and Disease Prevention Movements in the 21st Century, will examine 21st century national and international public health campaigns, highlighting health and safety campaigns in the USA, Indonesia, Pakistan, and Turkey. The session will enlighten attendees on new awareness and risk management trends in civil society, the private sector, and government. Using organizational experience, ADAO will also discuss cost-effective media strategies for coordinating successful educational, advocacy, and community public health campaigns that centralize educational information and resources, transition from one-sided messaging to public interaction, and empower workers and businesses to increase safety and compliance.

“APHA’s 2015 conference theme, Health in All Policies,is of great importance to ADAO,” explained Ms. Reinstein. “Collaboration between federal agencies and non-governmental organizations is critically important in effectively shaping public policy and enforcing existing laws and regulations to protect public health and our environment. Social media advocacy has allowed ADAO to share educational, advocacy, and community support initiatives around the world as we continue our work to prevent asbestos-caused diseases that claim up to 15, 000 American lives each year. ADAO is honored to be a part of this year’s meeting and salutes the APHA for their leadership, innovation, and commitment to protecting public health.”
