Craniofacial Foundation Of America Honors Dr. Sidney Cox

Friday, March 5, 2010

The Craniofacial Foundation of America (CFA) has awarded Dr. Sidney Cox the Terri Farmer Service Award for his outstanding contribution to the organization through his practice of pediatric dentistry. The award will be presented to Dr. Cox by the board of directors of the CFA at the annual Palate 2 Palette fundraiser on March 20.

The Craniofacial Foundation of America supports the Tennessee Craniofacial Center (T.C.C.) at T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital and Erlanger Medical Center. The 501©3 organization is dedicated to improving the lives of patients with facial differences. The foundation offers a variety of services to patients, their families, the public and to health care professionals. Services provided include coverage of non-medical expenses, support services and educational resources.

Dr. Cox is a part of the craniofacial team of physicians led by Dr. Larry A. Sargent at the Tennessee Craniofacial Center (TCC). Dr. Cox has given his time and services to the center since its establishment in 1987. During his time with TCC, he has helped thousands of children born with facial deformities. His efforts help give these children a second chance for a normal appearance.

“Every child deserves a chance. The CFA gives cleft palate children that chance, and I find it rewarding and challenging to be a part of their work,” stated Dr. Cox upon notice of the award.

The Terri Farmer Service Award was initially presented to Terri Farmer in 2009 for her 15 years of dedication to the CFA. As an honor to those that have followed in her steps, the CFA Board of Directors will choose a recipient each year to honor for their outstanding service to the organization.

“Dr. Cox was chosen as the recipient of the Terri Farmer Service Award for exemplifying dedication, compassion and willingness to make the differences in the lives of these children. These are the same traits that Terri Farmer gave to our patients and their families for 15 years,” stated Terry Smyth, Director of the CFA.

The award presentation will take place at the 2010 Palate 2 Palette after party, “Bubbles and Sweets”, hosted by Loose Cannon Art Gallery on Saturday, March 20 at 8 p.m. The annual Palate 2 Palette event is a fundraiser for the CFA. The funds raised benefit the foundation and its mission.
