IMG_E0484 Asbestos support group representatives from around Australia

The Asbestos Safety Conference in Perth in November 2019 provided a valuable opportunity for the various asbestos support groups from all around Australia to meet up face to face to exchange news and make plans for 2020.  It is heartening to know we are not on our own in this battle.   AVA volunteers met with representatives from ACV GARDS ( Gippsland Asbestos Related Diseases Support Inc), ADRI (Asbestos Diseases Research Institute), ADSA (Asbestos Diseases Society of Australia), ADSSA (Asbestos Diseases Society of SA), AFT (Asbestos Free Tasmania), AMAA (Asbestosis & Mesothelioma Assn of Australia) and the Reflections through Reality Foundation.  These groups have regular teleconferences but it is so much better to meet in person.
