About this event

The University of Toronto Dental Student's Society (DSS) is proud to present the official Canadian premiere and virtual screening of the documentary "Restoring Dignity” with a Q&A session with the co-director of the film Claire Jeantet.

The documentary “Restoring Dignity” follows the journey of NOMA survivors from different regions across Nigeria. NOMA is a neglected disease that affects individuals facing poverty, malnutrition, and poor hygiene. It is a gangrenous infection that can lead to the destruction of the tissues of the face and the death of up to 90% of those affected.

Special guest Claire Jeantet will be attending and answering live audience questions during the 45 minute Q&A session that will be held after the screening.

This event will be held virtually over ZOOM and you MUST register as there is a limited number of spots available.
