Welcome back to being MissUnderstood; this is Aunty Ky, inviting you to join us for part one of Episode 3. We’re calling this one Identity Crisis. How to move forward when facing sudden life changes. Today where we have Marla Green, FNP-BC, the founder and CEO of Educatrix Advanced Practice Seminars LLC. Her company conducts continuing education events for nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and physician assistants to maintain their licenses and certifications. Her inspiration to start the company came from a combination of experiences from her personal life journey and 25 years of professional work in the healthcare industry.
These days, there are a lot of ways we are called to take action on issues by making a personal choice to “take a stand” and “be the change.” I’m not going to lie to y’all; individual efforts can often feel pretty useless. How can my one action make a difference when, realistically, so many issues require large-scale overhauls to be addressed? But is this right here? This is something different. And I’m not here just telling you all about it; I believe in it so much that over 5 years ago, I made the decision to join the registry.
Welcome back to Being MissUnderstood this is Kyazia, your host, and friendly neighborhood health enthusiast who has been on an unnecessary hiatus. Instead of trying to give some sort of explanation as to why this took so long, I’m just going to sit here, tell you about the journey I’ve been on, and leave it where it’s at. With that being said… Season 1, Episode 1, we’ve got a lot of catching up to do.
Overview Despite undeniable contributions to the advancement of society, minorities have been systematically excluded from the popular narrative. On levels of health, work placement, academia, and American culture, these groups…
Glad you made it here. I'm Kyazia or as my friends affectionately call me, Aunty Ky. A public health practitioner, biomedical researcher, aspiring physician-scientist, and dance enthusiast. I get the struggles that come with trying to balance health and well-being. Taking responsibility for your health can be a daunting endeavor, and the need to prioritize it is high. There is so much information to keep up with, let alone incorporate it into everyday life.
What many people don’t know, is that only is that only 10-20% of their health outcomes, or well-being, are a result of medical care. A massive 80-90% of health outcomes come from influences like genetics and where people live, work, play, and pray. What if there was a way to access a one-stop-shop for information that is not only relevant, convenient, but also easy and practical to act upon? Being MissUnderstood is the answer to that question. My name is Kyazia Felder, and I am the founder and producer of Being MissUnderstood, a start-up content creation and broadcasting company positioned to bridge gaps between people and the outcomes they deserve.
Kyazia is that person you call when you need someone to give it to you straight. It doesn't matter if it's religion, politics, public health, she brings an insight that is always valuable (and usually a little out there). I can't wait for her to keep turning out the content.
