Chioma Oruh, PhD.
My mission is to promote family-centered care pervasively. Through advocacy efforts, the goal is to promote and support campaigns that include family leaders as key decision makers on the language, strategy and community action steps. Utilizing this family-centered framework, I am particularly interested in helping direct service-based entities discover sustainable and lucrative solutions to meet the needs of a diverse client and customer base, promoting diversity, equity and inclusion to discover systems solutions to adhering to federal and local policies that promote the rights of person with disabilities.
