Linda Reinstein became a public health activist after her husband, Alan, was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2003. Her search for answers regarding his exposure and treatment options led her to the realization that she and Alan were far from alone. In 2004, she co-founded the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) to increase international education, advocacy, and community initiatives regarding asbestos exposure.
Now serving as President and CEO, Reinstein has harnessed the power of social networks to instantly unite those affected by asbestos-related disease and those fighting for an international ban on asbestos. Since 2004, Reinstein has been a strong political voice for justice in every major asbestos-related issue. She frequently serves as a U.S. Congressional witness and has presented persuasive testimonies, presentations, and keynote speeches over 100 times at events around the world. She has received many prestigious awards and recognition for her international efforts.
Focused on asbestos disease prevention, Reinstein’s proficiency in the powerful advocacy space of online media has greatly increased the effectiveness of ADAO’s core mission of education, advocacy, and community support actions. She has been awarded many prestigious awards and recognition.
Today, she is heading the extensive organizational efforts behind the upcoming 12th Annual International Asbestos Awareness Conference. You can reach Reinstein through her social media networks.
