Mesothelioma UK Ladies' Lunch
When: March 8 2019
Where: Manchester, United Kingdom
To coincide with International Womens' Day, national cancer charity Mesothelioma UK, is holding a Ladies' Lunch on Friday 8th March at the Manchester Macdonald Hotel. The event will mark the launch of a new study - Gendered Experiences of Mesothelioma (GEM) study. The study will explore men and women’s experiences of mesothelioma (asbestos-related cancer) in order to identify the implications for health, social care and legal practices. Consultation with health and legal professionals indicates that women may have a different experience to men regarding mesothelioma in terms of awareness of the disease, diagnosis, access to treatment and compensation and legal processes.
The event includes a three course meal, raffle and auction, with proceeds going to the charity.
