Smile Train, Inc. Key Developments

Smile Train Appoints Randy Sherman to Medical Advisory Board

Smile Train announced the appointment of plastic surgeon Dr. Randy Sherman to its Medical Advisory Board. Dr. Sherman brings over thirty years of medical experience to aid Smile Train's efforts to provide free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care in developing countries.

Smile Train and Sandisk Corporation Partners to Continue Building Sustainable System to Address the Solvable Problem of the Cleft Lip and Palate

Smile Train and SanDisk Corporation announced that they have partnered to continue building a sustainable system to address the solvable problem of the cleft lip and palate. Through the SanDisk Foundation, SanDisk’s global commitment is helping to bring life-changing cleft care to children in developing countries by committing support through technology solutions, services, volunteer matching gifts, and grant funds. Each day, Smile Train provides free surgery for more than 350 children worldwide, and in April 2014, celebrated its millionth free cleft repair surgery. Smile Train uses the 'teach a man to fish' model, empowering local doctors to perform cleft repairs in their own communities, and to teach and to train other doctors. This creates a long-term, sustainable system. The SanDisk and Smile Train partnership will strengthen this model by facilitating information sharing across a global network of cleft medical personnel who work and train in remote parts of the world, and by providing resources that these professionals might have barriers to accessing on their own. The partnership will help expand access to medical training videos, photos, and documents that in turn will extend the medical teams’ reach, bringing the power of a smile to even more children in need. Using SanDisk Connect devices, Smile Train and local doctors can wirelessly store and share materials across multiple devices, even in areas where Wi-Fi is not available. This allows them to extend their network of medical professionals, helping to train even more personnel and strengthen the cleft care programs.
