Sherry Payne, MSN, RN, CNE, IBCLC, is the executive director of Uzazi Village, a nonprofit organization devoted to decreasing pregnancy-related health disparities in the urban core of Kansas City. She also facilitated the 2014 Lactation Summit: Addressing Inequities Within the Lactation Consultant Profession. Ms. Payne speaks frequently around the country to professional audiences on topics related to lactation and birth disparities. One of the many barriers that aspiring International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) of color face is acquiring clinical hours. The Uzazi Village Lactation Consultant Mentorship Program is an innovative solution connecting aspiring IBCLCs from the Kansas City community to the Uzazi Village Breastfeeding Clinic, which provides free services to area families.
