Craniofacial Family Advisory Board
The Craniofacial Family Advisory Board is a group of volunteers that supports craniofacial families. Meetings are held 3-4 times per year in early evenings at the UTC Family Resource Center on the second floor of Connecticut Children’s main campus in Hartford. Members can talk with other parents of craniofacial patients and share their personal experiences, as well as plan events such as lemonade stands, bake sales, the holiday party, picnics and more.
If you or your child has received care from Connecticut Children’s Craniofacial Team, you are eligible to join the Craniofacial Family Advisory Board. To sign up, contact Glendalee Morales via email or at 860.545.9360.
