The Center for Asbestos Related Disease recently received an award for Nonprofit of the Year at the annual Libby Chamber banquet.

Dr. Brad Black, Medical Director and founder of the CARD Clinic was on hand to accept the award on behalf of all the clinic’s staff. Black said, “It’s an honor to be part of something so special, like our community in Libby.  Being at the Chamber event and seeing so many familiar faces is humbling and reminds me of how important our mission is at CARD.”

The clinic provides long-term screening, health monitoring, disease diagnosis, specialized asbestos healthcare, and counseling to all people impacted by Libby amphibole asbestos. In addition, they provide outreach, advocacy, disease prevention and research to benefit all people impacted by asbestos.
