President’s Letter

ACPAACPA News, President's Letter

Robert J. Havlik, MD

I am proud and excited to be writing this month’s letter as the President of the newly merged ACPA. As of June 30, 2017, the Cleft Palate Foundation merged with ACPA and has become ACPA Family Services. ACPA is proud to represent professionals and families working together to build cleft and craniofacial awareness and improve care. Please take a moment to read a letter from Marilyn Cohen, CPF President (2013-2017).

We are also pleased to announce the launch of ACPA’s new website this month. Please keep an eye on for ongoing updates about ACPA’s programs. The ACPA Family Services site will be integrated into the ACPA website over the next year under the Patients and Families section.

We look forward to providing support and resources and spreading awareness of cleft and craniofacial conditions. Please join us as we recognize National Cleft and Craniofacial Awareness Month throughout July. We will be sharing patient, family and professional stories all month on the ACPA Blog, Facebook and Twitter accounts, and we have several events planned to spread awareness in Chapel Hill, NC.

I am confident in ACPA’s future, and I hope you’ll continue to join us in our efforts to create a world, through team care, where individuals with oral cleft and craniofacial conditions thrive.
