Midwifery Education Program
Former Keynote Speaker: Sakina O'Uhuru
Sakina O'Uhuru, RPA, CM, MS was a former CHRP Convocation keynote speaker. Sakina embodies, in one person, so much of the essence of the College of Health Related Professions - a commitment to interdisciplinary work, to serving underserved communities, to leadership, and to personal and professional courage and innovation.
Sakina came to the Midwifery Education Profession as a Physician Assistant. She graduated in the class of 1997, one of the early classes of students with diverse professional backgrounds - other than nursing. She worked for a number of years in the underserved community of Morris Heights in the Bronx, at the Childbearing Center. She became a leader at the Center, assuming the position of Midwifery Service Director.
She subsequently took the innovative and courageous step of creating her own practice. Today, she works 24/7, providing the very needed service of home births for women.
