Lauren R. Kornegay, founder of Endo Black joins us this month.  Diagnosed with endometriosis at the age of 20, Lauren experienced the pain, struggles, exhaustion, and confusion that accompany the disorder. This led her on a search to find someone that looked like her, who was also dealing with endometriosis. Having previously searched social media, websites, and other avenues, she knew something had to change. Her mother always told her, “If there’s a void, fill it, and if you want something done, do it yourself.” Lauren believes in “creating a space where there is no space.” So in October of 2015, Lauren established Endo Black, Inc., a platform designed to connect African American women and women of color affected by endometriosis. Join us today as she talks about her endo story, living a life of service, and her endo story.  Check out https://www.endoblack.org/ for all of the events and details we talked about on today's show.  Want to watch it on YouTube? http://tiny.cc/6cx6tz Thank you for listening and supporting this podcast.
