6TH ANNUAL ASBESTOS DISEASES SOCIETY OF AUSTRALIA

WALK FOR RESEARCH AND AWARENESS 2017

10 September 2017 to 15 September 2017 – Merredin to Perth

The Asbestos Diseases Society Walk for Research and Awareness 2017 is from Merredin to Perth starting on Monday 11 September and concluding on Friday 15 September at Solidarity Park near the rear of Parliament House. The ADSA Walk is of vital importance so that we can support our world-renowned researchers to continue with their noble work to treat patients and find a cure for mesothelioma. The ADSA Walk funds an ongoing PhD mesothelioma research scholarship to attract the best clinicians/scientists researching and working with mesothelioma patients and will be supervised by Professor Anna Nowak and the NCARD team at the University of Western Australia.

Members, friends, and supporters are invited to join the ADSA Walk Team in Northam for the ADSA Walk Around Town on Thursday 14 September 2017. Please click here for the details.

Health Checks – If you are concerned about your exposure to asbestos

If you are concerned about your exposure whether through your work or through DIY renovations please call our office 1800 646 690 to arrange a health check with our Doctor. The disease mesothelioma has a latency period 0f 25 – 40 years. With the majority of cases developing in the 35-40 year period since exposure.

Our numbers are: 1800 646 690     08 9344 4077

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 
Spokesperson for and on behalf of
the Asbestos Diseases Society
