ACPA’s Impact Report




ACPA President Patricia A. Beals, DMD, MS

I am pleased to share with you our 2019 Impact Report. As you will see, we have made great strides this year by focusing our efforts on the individuals at the heart of our mission “to create a world where people with cleft and craniofacial conditions thrive.”

The words of our mission can be found throughout this impact report. Our goal is that the mission statement resonates whenever you hear or see the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association name. Those are the words that best reflect why we exist, what we believe in and where we are going.

With your help and the help of others, we have carried out our mission for 77 years. The impact we make on the lives of those we serve have always been at the heart of what we do. Since 1943, ACPA has provided education, support, research and interdisciplinary team care to ensure the best possible outcomes for patients—enabling individuals to live complete and fulfilling lives.

Thank you for your support. We hope the stories we share inspire you to stay on the journey with us as we continue to positively impact the lives of patients, their families, and the professionals who provide their care.
