"Many Years - Many Lives"
I had the honor of meeting this amazing woman while filming a 2016 documentary in the Dominican Republic for Keuka College's first ever multi-disciplinary field period project that consisted of adult and traditional aged students in the social work, nursing and occupational therapy divisions. Her official age was not known but she said she was somewhere in her 90s. She worked her entire life in a rural mountain village as a midwife helping to bring countless numbers of lives into the world. The building behind her in the photo, with the spaces between the boards, is the structure she calls her home.
