Cleft and Craniofacial Awareness Month

July is national Cleft & Craniofacial Awareness & Prevention Month. These conditions affect thousands of infants, children, teens and adults in the United States each year. Some are born with conditions such as cleft lip and palate, and others have more complex, life-threatening conditions.
 
VMC's own Alex Lechtman, MD, FACS, has helped children with cleft lip and palate through his involvement with Interface Kids. This group of physicians travels to Mexico to perform cleft lip and palate surgeries on children and adults. 
 
Thank you, Dr. Lechtman, for generously giving of your time and talents. For information about cleft lip and palate, www.interfacekids.org .
