Dear Members and Friends,
We are proud to announce the Professor Anna Nowak MB BS,PhD W.Aust, FRACP Medical Oncology SCGH is the winner of Asbestos Diseases Society of Australia Inc. 2014 Emeritus Professor Eric G. Saint Memorial Award. The award was presented to Professor Nowak by The Hon. Catherine (Kate) Doust MLC at the Asbestos Diseases Society of Australia Inc. Annual AGM Meeting on March 16 2014
Please join us in congratulating Professor Nowak as she has become close to many of our members in providing treatment for sufferers of asbestos related diseases and working hard to ensure that potential worldwide life saving treatment trials are accessed here in Western Australia.
With deep respect I dedicate this website to the memory of all those unfortunate victims of asbestos-caused diseases, and their families.
Quoting a Kenyan proverb ...
"We do not inherit the earth from our parents, rather we borrow it from our children."
The principal aim of this website is to provide information on asbestos, its risk and to initiate programs to reduce the fourth wave of asbestos diseases which has already begun, and inevitably will become more insidious if exposure to asbestos in public and private buildings, schools and the environment is not abated.
President of the Asbestos Diseases Society,
Robert Vojakovic AM JP BCom
Spokesperson for and on behalf of
the Asbestos Diseases Society
