We encourage patients with mesothelioma, their families and friends, students, and concerned citizens to get involved with PHLBI. We offer numerous opportunities for volunteering, including supporting patient-centered programs and assisting with administrative activities. Being a volunteer at PHLBI is a unique way to give back to the Los Angeles community, in general, and to Veterans, in particular. Many veterans have mesothelioma. Volunteering or donating to PHLBI helps to empower patients and continue research to help even more patients. Students may be able to receive course credit for volunteer work. If you would like to organize a third party event to raise awareness and needed funding for research, please contact PHLBI at (310) 478-4678 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
