Abstract Accepted for ACPA 73rd Annual Meeting in Atlanta

Sam and her research team have successfully had their abstract accepted for the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association's 73rd Annual Meeting and Symposium in Atlanta, Georgia.

The abstract, titled, "Animation and Interactive Media's Educational and Emotional Impact on Children with Cleft and their Caregivers," will cover the four major project research questions of the four group members (Sam Bond, Samantha Olson, Melanie Conrad, and Eva Mae Natividad). 

Sam's component of this 30 minute presentation will discuss some of the successes and benefits of her research, animating Cleft Palate repair surgeries and housing those animations in an interactive environment with knowledge recall and clarification games.
