The Mesothelioma Veterans Center


The Mesothelioma Veterans Center

The Mesothelioma Veterans Center provides information about treatment, clinical trials, and VA benefits to veterans suffering from asbestos-related illnesses. They have helped hundreds of veterans pursue compensation after developing mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer from their asbestos exposure in the military.

No one gets left behind. To that end, they strive to provide veterans diagnosed with asbestos illnesses the best information, advice and assistance. From filing for VA Disability Compensation to helping veterans find the best medical treatment.

Because veterans comprise the single largest group of Americans diagnosed with mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancers each year, they are the most affected, yet their needs are the most underserved. There are many benefits available to veterans, which many overlook. The Mesothelioma Veterans Center envision a day when they are able to ensure that every veteran diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos lung cancer is able to get the best medical treatment available and that they receive any and all VA benefits for which they are eligible.

The Mesothelioma Veterans Center provides advice that is founded on VA law and publication. They never speculate and speak only of what they know to be true. 

Attention to detail is the cornerstone of our approach to each VA claim. Every asbestos-related claim is different. Therefore, The Mesothelioma Veterans Center will provide the veteran with the information and guidance that they need to ensure that their claim is complete, correct, and compelling.

Montgomery County's Asian American Health Initiative - Health and Wellness Outreach


The cornerstone of AAHI is the provision of quality health education and robust community outreach. The

goal of health education and community outreach is to empower individuals to take control of their health by providing them with the information and resources they need to make changes in their lives.

AAHI has developed a library of multilingual and culturally-relevant educational materials in the form of pamphlets, brochures, booklets, and posters regarding a variety of diseases and illnesses of concern to the Asian American community. Some of these materials are available for electronic download on the Resources page of this website and are used in various health education efforts, such as through social media, the AAHI newsletter, and print media.

AAHI’s comprehensive outreach efforts serves as another major platform to share health education materials. AAHI’s outreach strategy ensures that community members both increase their knowledge of specific health concerns impacting their community, and are aware of programs, services, and other culturally-specific resources that are available to them locally.
