A Beautiful Smile is Simply…Priceless®

Publication News

GSF was one of the first NGOs to resume international outreach programs for cleft care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Conducting medical missions in this new environment required increased safety measures to protect our volunteers, patients, and their family members. GSF co-authors outlined these procedures in our article Application of Safety Protocols for International Cleft Outreach Programs During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Global Smile Foundation Precaution Guidelines and Implications, published online by the Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal.

The GSF author team includes Omar Al Abyad, Beyhan Annan, Antonio Melhem, Elsa Chahine, Elie Ramly, Raj Vyas, and Usama Hamdan.
