Important Announcement - Mary Hesdorffer, NP Named New Executive Director


July 30, 2012

Hanne Mintz and Dr. Axel Hanauske, Co-Chairs of the Board of Directors of the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation would like to announce that Kathy Wiedemer has stepped down from her position as the Meso Foundation’s executive director. She will be replaced by Mary Hesdorffer, NP, effective immediately.

The Meso Foundation would like to thank Kathy for her service to the Foundation and the mesothelioma community. In 2010, Kathy facilitated the Meso Foundation’s move from Santa Barbara, CA to the Washington, DC area and has since established the Meso Foundation in our nation’s capital.

We wish Kathy the best of luck in her future endeavors.

Mary Hesdorffer, NP had been the Meso Foundation’s medical liaison since 2007 and under Mary’s leadership as the new executive director, the Foundation looks forward to continuing its important work in mesothelioma research, education, support, and advocacy.
