While talking about his plans for the future, Prof. Rosa mentions:
“…I intend to develop other projects inside and outside the field of Dentistry, activities that will contribute to our growth as human beings, helping people in need or difficulties. I intend to spend more time with my family, to be more present by giving and valuing the simplest things. I believe this is the essence of life. Life! God has bestowed on me so many good things! It is high time I gave it back…”.
