Highlighting Black Invisible Illness Voices: Myiesha Trumpler
Today we’re sharing our interview with Myiesha Trumpler, a Black chronic illness warrior. She tells us about her struggles with getting diagnosed and how that made it hard to manage pain with no alternatives. Not only that, the way racial perceptions may hinder some from getting the correct diagnosis sooner. That’s why she strongly advocates for the Lupus and Black communities, and also strives to better the medical industry by being a gynecologist.
