ACPA Legends

For all those, present and future, who view these interview excerpts, we hope that you will keep in mind the intent with which they are offered – to provide an enduring sample of the personalities, experiences, wisdom and recollections of some of the inspirational leaders of the American Cleft Palate – Craniofacial Association.  We especially trust that the generations who follow will appreciate these and other dominant ACPA masters of their craft not only as accomplished clinicians, teachers and researchers, but also as caring human beings who dedicated their careers to making a lasting and positive difference in the lives of individuals with craniofacial anomalies and their families.
