Student Leadership: My Journey

It’s been almost 10 years since I was first introduced to APTA’s House of Delegates (HoD) and I hope to inspire students to be engaged 10 years from now.

My name is Mike Ukoha. I have been a PT for Fox Rehabilitation with a focus in the neuro and geriatric client population for six years. I have been engaged with APTA Maryland for the HoD since 2015. I volunteered as a house usher as a student at University of Maryland Baltimore. The following year in 2016, I became a student delegate for the Maryland delegation. After graduating in 2017, I became a delegate for the chapter in 2021 and served until 2023 in the delegate role. This is my first year as a chief delegate and it is an honor to serve on behalf of the Maryland delegation and our profession at large. I am excited to create an open dialogue, bring innovative ideas, and support members and non members of our governing body this year!
