National Cleft & Craniofacial Awareness & Prevention Month

July marks National Cleft & Craniofacial Awareness & Prevention Month.  Cleft and craniofacial conditions affect thousands of people in the US each year and many more throughout the world. Cleft and craniofacial conditions can include congenital anomalies, such as cleft lip or palate, life-threatening craniofacial conditions, burns, injuries, and oral/head/neck and skin diseases such as cancer.

We recommend several resources that support people with facial differences and provide information, education, and other services.

To learn more about these and other resources, please visit the National Cleft & Craniofacial Awareness & Prevention Month (NCCAPM), the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), and the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.
