New Year, renewed call to sign up with Insulators Tissue Bank

Posted by on Fri, Jan 8, 2016 @ 12:01 PM

A New Year is upon us, and a renewed call has been issued to sign up with the Insulators Tissue Bank (ITB).  New forms for 2016 are now available on our website and, once again, we are encouraging all members to get involved and help us find a way to end asbestos-related diseases, including mesothelioma.

Forms from 2015 will no longer be accepted.
