TF Partners, Board & Staff.

If you’ve been keeping an eye on our blog or social media over the past few weeks, you will already know that the International Cleft Congress took place in Chennai, India this February.

Once every four years, the world’s leading cleft professionals convene at this prestigious international event to share their expertise and learn from each other. TF partners, Board Members and staff played an important role at the Cleft Congress, and we are thrilled to share their accomplishments with you!

We are so proud of our longtime partner, Sri Ramachandra University (SRU), who organized the International Cleft Congress this year. We applaud them for all the time and hard work they put into hosting nearly 1,000 delegates from across the globe (and we truly believe it was the best Cleft Congress yet!).

“We are very proud here at SRU. It is a big milestone for us to be able to host such an event.”
