About CARD

The Center for Asbestos Related Disease (CARD) is a non-profit community based organization that evolved in response to raised awareness of wide spread asbestos exposure in the Libby area that surfaced in 1999. After the ATSDR (Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry) screenings during 2000 and 2001 identified the high number of lung abnormalities, it became apparent to the community that long-term specialty care needed to be established in Libby.
