Arlene Samen: A Global Healer for Women

Arlene Samen has been a Nurse Practitioner in Maternal Fetal Medicine for over 33 years. In 1997, Arlene met the Dalai Lama and showed him what Interplast could offer children of Tibet. He said to her, “You must go into Tibet and help rural people. When you are on the path of service, all doors will open to you.” That meeting deeply impacted the trajectory of Arlene’s life of service. In 2004, she left behind her clinical practice to dedicate her life to serving pregnant women living in the most vulnerable conditions in the most remote places of the world. By 2009, she started One Heart World-Wide, which spread its life saving “network of safety” model to 60,000 women in remote villages in Nepal, the Copper Canyon in Mexico, and deep into the Amazon jungle in Ecuador where few dared to go. She shares more from her journey in this in-depth interview.
