Registration now open for Meso Symposium

The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (Meso Foundation) announced registration is now open for the 2010 International Symposium on Malignant Mesothelioma. The event is set for June 10-12 in Washington, D.C. The annual event includes science presentations from leading mesothelioma experts, breakout sessions for patients, families/caregivers and bereaved, and many community and social activities.

A special part of the Symposium activities is Advocacy Day, during which meso patients and their families travel to Capitol Hill to meet with their Senators and Representatives to ask for increased funding for mesothelioma research and treatment, and for the complete ban of asbestos in the United States.

I had the pleasure of attending this event last year and it is truly an amazing experience. There are touching tributes to those who have lost the fight against mesothelioma, and inspiring stories from those who are winning this battle. You can also gain so much knowledge from the many physicians and researchers who present programs. Many of them are open and available to talk with attendees throughout the conference as well.

You can find more information, including a video and archives of last year’s Symposium presentations, at You can also view the agenda and register at the web site.  Or, call the Meso Foundation toll free at 877-363-6376.
