I ( Kylene) am a Consultant for Behavioral Health with a Healthcare System In the DC Metro Area. When first diagnosed with diabetes in 2010, I was originally told it was Type 2 and later found out I was misdiagnosed and that I was actually Type 1. This is a common issue found in the African American Community when Adults are being diagnosed later in life. I am the founder of Blackdiabetic Girl which focuses on diversity and inclusion of people of color in the diabetic community and hosting support groups/meet ups for those in the area. While volunteering with various diabetic organizations, I also am on an academic journey pursuing a degree in psychology to become a therapist.
I believe that sharing my experiences Is not only therapeutic for myself but It can possibly help someone else. I must however warn you Im blunt and curse a little.
Please stay connected to see the future projects I am working on. I am excited and can not wait to share them with everyone.
