Registration for our 1-day conference on mesothelioma is now open! We’ve organized a stellar line-up of Canadian and international experts, who will share their insights on the early detection and diagnosis of mesothelioma, the latest research on innovative treatments, the strengths and limitations of patient registries; and the CMF’s progress building a Mesothelioma Health Network as well as the broader efforts to develop a comprehensive Canadian response to asbestos and asbestos disease.

At the conclusion of the official conference program, there will be a networking reception with hors d’oeuvres and host bar, followed by the Canadian premiere of “Breathless” by Belgian filmmaker Daniel Lambo.

Following the deaths of his father and many others from his village, filmmaker Daniel Lambo sets off on a passionate quest to find the truth about the deadly asbestos industry.

We are privileged to be joined by Daniel Lambo and Eric Jonckheere, whose family’s story is featured in the film. They will introduce the film and engage with the audience in a Q&A following the screening.
