Losing my brother, Dr. Manu Dua, to Oral Cancer at the age of 34 compelled me to create the Dua Good Job Symposium.

This event not only imparts practical clinical knowledge but also addresses the emotional and human side of dealing with oral cancer.

For students and residents, it's an opportunity to enhance your understanding of comprehensive oral exams and the oral systemic link.

The symposium guides you to future-proof patient care, offering a holistic approach that extends beyond technicalities. Join us to learn from experts, deepen your understanding of oral cancer, and leave inspired to save lives.
