An interdisciplinary congress that brings awareness about the family-based approach to care will take place in Lima, Peru on November 23-25, 2012. The Congress will educate cleft practitioners, medical students and parents about the importance of holistic care and support the parents’ role in treatment.

Co-funded with the support of Smile Train and Transforming Faces, the Congress will showcase the work of our Peruvian team, as well as the Cleft Lip and Palate Department at the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids).

It is integral that our local teams have access to new training opportunities. This Congress will serve to re-energize the Peruvian team with new ideas for providing comprehensive cleft care in their own communities.

Stay tuned for more from the Congress!
