With increased numbers of women in the dental profession, it is imperative that women be considered as vital intellectual capacity for the future. The Fourth ADEA International Women's Leadership Conference (Fourth ADEA IWLC) will work to deliver leadership strategies that women can use to improve oral health and overall health in communities globally.

The conference is from September 5 to 8 and will be held at the Pestana Bahia Hotel in Salvador, Brazil. It provides an outstanding opportunity for the presentation and discussion of issues in education, research, and women's health.
