Welcome Message

Welcome to the 2nd Cleft Lip & Palate Conference!

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to mark with us the beginning of the second Cleft Lip & Palate Conference. Building upon the tremendous success of our inaugural first event, we are thrilled to see the growing interest and support for this important event. We extend a warm welcome to all the distinguished guests, medical professionals, researchers, and advocates who will join us from various corners of the world. The impact of the first conference reverberated far beyond the event itself. Collaborations were formed, knowledge was shared, and ground-breaking research was presented. We witnessed first-hand the power of collective expertise and the strength of a united community. The outcomes of this collaboration have already made a tangible difference in the lives of those affected by cleft lip and palate. Today, as we embark on the second chapter of this remarkable journey, we are filled with a renewed sense of purpose and determination. Our aim remains clear—to push the boundaries of knowledge, foster collaborations, and promote the highest standard of care for individuals with cleft lip and palate. Together, we will continue to explore new frontiers, share best practices, and advocate for better resources and support. On behalf of the organizing committee, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the participants, sponsors, and supporters who will make this event possible. Together, we will leave a lasting impact on the lives of individuals with cleft lip and palate, and together, we will shape a future of hope, inclusion, and improved care
