July 26th Screenside Chat

Diagnosed Twice

with Phyllisa Deroze, PWD
Sunday, July 26th at 3 pm ET / noon PT

Tune in to hear Phyllisa Deroze, diabetes advocate, writer, and speaker, talk about her experiences living with the wrong diabetes diagnosis for over eight years.

Phyllisa Deroze is a global diabetes patient advocate from Florida. She began blogging at DiagnosedNOTdefeated.com almost immediately after being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2011. Last summer, however, she learned that she has type 1 diabetes and spent the past eight years misdiagnosed. In addition to her blog, she founded Black Diabetic Info; a website dedicated to increasing cultural-competent diabetes information. Phyllisa has graced the cover of Health Monitor magazine and been featured in Diabetic Living, Diabetes Focus, and others magazines and newsletters. Her passion for diabetes lifestyle advocacy can be seen in her YouTube vlogs, social media posts, in-person workshops, published essays, and keynote speeches that she has given in five countries. Her motto "Diagnosed Not Defeated," is an inspiration for anyone diagnosed with diabetes and takes on new meaning for her after being diagnosed with diabetes twice.

Now, more than ever, it's important to stay connected with your community. During these times when we can't get together in person, we'll connect via our own fireside chat-style webinars.

We'll be hosting webinars every other Sunday afternoon at 3 pm ET / noon PT.  Come hang out with the CWD staff and our slate of special guests!  Check back often for announcements of next webinars and even some pop-up hang outs!

Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay connected, CWD family.  We're here for you, now and always.
