Workshop: The burden of asbestos-related disease in BC

In May 2010, the Partnership held a workshop to exchange knowledge and develop priorities around asbestos-related disease. The event brought together a diverse group of stakeholders interested in, or affected by, asbestos-related disease to share current research activity on asbestos-related disease, and to discuss ways of improving awareness and prevention of asbestos-related disease in BC. The workshop, held in Vancouver, was hosted by researchers from the Partnership and the UBC School of Environmental Health. The workshop was funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research.
