MARSCH is looking to still offer its members new information especially since we are all social distancing. We are trying to be able to still connect as a group and are actually going to offer Zoom mtgs for each region.
Pleural Mesothelioma Center
Asbestos exposure causes thousands of cases of pleural mesothelioma in the United States each year, and our mission is to help the families affected by this cancer. Our organization offers free assistance and resources to anyone coping with pleural mesothelioma.
As you may be aware, pleural mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Due to the long latency period of mesothelioma, approximately 20-50 years, about 80% of those who are diagnosed with this terrible disease are seniors. Our organization works 1-on-1 with these individuals to help them find local doctors, treatment centers and support groups, all for absolutely no cost to the patient.
I was wondering if you'd be interested in including our information as a resource to help seniors suffering from pleural mesothelioma. Feel free to take a look:
This toolkit uses a critical framework and an intersectional lens to examine the nexus of race, age, class, and victimization, and the systemic barriers older African American victims of crime face when seeking supports and services from the crime victim assistance field. The toolkit has three parts, including a guide with content modules, a workbook with reflection questions, and a library of video clips. The toolkit’s content is guided by video clips of older survivors sharing their stories and an expert panel providing insight into best practices for enhancing services to older African American victims. The tool also offers practical strategies to help victim services providers and criminal justice systems stakeholders better identify, reach, and serve older African American victims.
To learn more about the toolkit and NCALL’s work with the NRC please visit our website.
If you would like to explore additional resources to better identify, reach, and serve older crime victims, please visit the Resource Library on the Reaching Victims website and select “older adults” in the search bar.
For information about enhancing services to older victims and opportunities to receive training and technical assistance, please visit the NRC’s website.
