01 Mar Spotlight on: Theresa Snelling & Betsy Straka
Theresa Snelling serves on the advisory board of Face-To-Face Colorado. She has been a long-standing provider – and supporter – of cleft care in the state for 30 years. She is currently attending her 10th mission to the Philippines to provide free cleft surgeries and intensive speech therapy to children affected by cleft lip and palate with little to no access to health care. These mission trips are organized by the International Children’s Surgical Foundation www.icsfoundation.org, which also provides training to local doctors, enabling them to eventually treat their own patients. Joining her for the first time is Betsy Straka, Speech Pathologist in Colorado Springs, who is also a member of the Face-to-Face Colorado Board.
