Dr. G. Keith Stillwell, M.D.

The Outstanding Resident Research Award at Mayo Clinic Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department was established in June of 2004 by Jayanthi V. Subbarao, M.D., M.S., a Mayo Alumnus (1975-1977), to promote clinical care, education and research related to individuals with functional limitations.  This foundation was established in memory of his parents and brother who greatly influenced his professional and personal growth.

 

The award was renamed in June 2007 and dedicated to Dr. G. Keith Stillwell in memory of his great contributions including being a role model for future generations of clinicians, educators, and medical administrators in physical medicine and rehabilitation.

JCF & AFS collaborate to treat children with cleft

Contributing to sponsor one child treatment per year:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alliance for Smiles improves the lives of children and communities impacted by cleft by providing free comprehensive treatment, while building local capacity for long-term care. In our 16 years of existence, we have served over 7,000 patients in 15 countries; the total value of the donated medical services we have provided is over $33 million. And because we have such a loyal group of talented volunteers who donate their time, our overhead is extremely low - just 10%. 

 

Mr. Paul Vazquez, Director of operations for Alliance for Smiles, noted that this organization provides services to other countries only because, in the United States of America, all children with clefts receive treatment at a very early age, and the treatment includes multi-dimensional long-term care.  One of the goals of Alliance for Smiles is to help other countries to replicate the long term treatment that countries such as the USA employ.

 

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Alliance for Smiles has continued to innovate, launch new programs, and achieve its life-changing mission, by remotely training medical teams serving children with cleft around the world, and we remain ready to get back to the field as soon as possible.
