Einstein once said, “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” Dr. Barone couldn’t agree more, and believes that the newest technologies in medical science should be shared to help others in need who lack access.
That’s why, like many philanthropists in the medical field, Dr. Barone makes time to volunteer for the less fortunate. The hours of service she’s devoted to helping others have proven to be some of her most rewarding life-experiences.
Philanthropy has also had a powerful impact on her work. While training in some of the top surgery programs in the world, Dr. Barone devoted countless hours correcting cleft lip, palate and craniofacial deformities in children in under-served communities, and developing countries. While completing her craniofacial fellowship in New York, Dr. Barone did mission work in the Philippines for seven years. There, she saw hundreds of cases, and worked with therapists, anesthesiologists and medical teams to pioneer better surgery practices. This volunteering experience showed her the impact we can all have on the lives of others and how great it feels to help people… to be part of something bigger than yourself.
Dr. Barone’s service work has also earned her many professional honors.
