Virtual Action Mesothelioma Day 2020
Friday 3 July, 10:45-12:00
The UKMA is producing a national virtual Action Mesothelioma Day event that we encourage anyone affected by mesothelioma to join.
The national virtual event will include a mix of patient stories and clinical expert presentations. It will run from 10.45am to 12 noon with the observation of a minutes' silence at 11am.
