Dr. Samuel Berkowitz, an Adjunct Faculty in the Department of Orthodontics at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry, earned the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association Honors of the Association Award at the ACPA and Cleft Palate Foundation 73rd annual meeting and pre-conference symposium.
According to the ACPA, the award “represents the highest expression of respect and gratitude ACPA bestows. It is granted to an individual whose lifetime of research, health care delivery, or leadership has advanced, significantly and uniquely, the amelioration of physical, behavioral, or social handicapping conditions of cleft lip and palate or other craniofacial anomalies.”
The ACPA also noted that Dr. Berkowitz devoted “his entire life to the improvement of treatment of those with craniofacial cleft palate and lip differences.”
