Race, Representation, and Redefining What Sick Looks Like



Race, Representation, and Redefining What Sick Looks Like – Episode 49 – Transcript

Victoria Reese is Co-Founder and CEO of We Are Ill, a nonprofit organization for Black women with MS that provides support, sisterhood, and a space to learn from one another (something she couldn’t find upon her own MS diagnosis). Today, Victoria fosters this community and helps others become a “professional patient.” By being as knowledgeable as possible about your illness, you can be an active decision-maker in the healthcare setting, and one day feel empowered to say “I have MS but MS does not have me.”
