On the eve of Halloween our office was transformed with witches, ghouls, Harry Potter impersonators and a guy in an orange suit with a massive afro!
Dr Siva delivered a presentation on research conducted with his colleagues at Harvard University and Boston Children’s Hospital at the World Federation of Orthodontists 8th International Orthodontic Congress in September 2015. This international conference is held every five years, and enables Specialist Orthodontists from all over the world to collaborate, and exchange clinical and research insights. Dr Siva presented his research on the application of 3D Facial mapping to assess nasal symmetry in Cleft Lip and Palate patients.
In September 2015 Dr Siva travelled to Berlin to run in the Berlin Marathon, one of the 6 major marathons in the world. It’s a flat course which takes you on a 42.195km tour of a beautiful, historic city. The marathon world record has been broken at this event in 2013 and 2014. With a busy schedule this year, Dr. Siva was not expecting to challenge the elite runners, but was simply excited to have the opportunity to participate in such an event. Although he experienced cramping from the 26km mark, he soldiered through the last 16.2km on and finished the course with more than 40,000 others from 127 countries around the world. Well done Dr Siva, we’re very proud of you!
