Dr. Cox was one of only five dentists in Liberia, serving a population of more than three million when she enlisted the support of St. Anne’s in 2008 to develop a pioneering program of healthcare outreach for children and young people. Throughout 2008 to 2012, St. Anne’s organized a series of money-raising events such as auctions and dinners to raise $50,000 in a campaign called “Smiles For Liberia.” This helped Dr. Cox to purchase and equip a mobile dental clinic and to provide training for an assistant.
Our prayers and best wishes continue to go out to Dr. Cox’s family and the nation of Liberia for their loss.
