“Journey to the Oasis – Explore the World of Cleft and Craniofacial Care”, the theme of the 72nd Annual Meeting of the ACPA, highlights the meeting as an oasis for learning the state of the art in cleft and craniofacial care. General sessions, concurrent specialty sessions, short courses, posters and exhibits will be offered. The Program Committee and Committee Chair, Robert J.
