Dr. Omolara Thomas Uwemedimo is a healthcare social entrepreneurship & funding consultant, specializing BIPOC, women-led healthcare practices partnering with community organizations to create health justice for historically excluded & under-resourced communities.
Dr. Uwemedimo worked as a global pediatrician in low-income countries for almost 2 decades and as a public health researcher and professor for over a decade, securing over $2 million in grant funding and leading inter-professional teams to build and scale healthcare delivery and research programs to achieve health equity for marginalized youth and families.
However, in 2019 after experiencing burnout and a life-changing diagnosis of multiple sclerosis , she transitioned to social entrepreneurship to finally create healthcare spaces that truly served under-resourced communities.
In less than 18 months, she and her co-founders, secured over $650,000 in funding for her own social impact multi-practice healthcare network, Strong Children Wellness, which embeds comprehensive & tech-enabled physical health, mental health and social care services within community based organizations to serve marginalized & historically excluded youth and families, including those affected by medical racism, trauma, mental illness, immigration challenges and poverty.
