This will help to raise awareness of the charity’s work, while also offering a way to get up-to-date on the latest developments, learn from others, network with them and use these collectively, as a goal for the prevention of the disease. We’re proud to be recognised as internationally-renowned experts in mesothelioma and the patient experience.”
