  • S1:E2 Join Be The Match®: An Individual Choice with Real-World Impacts

    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.

The Host

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.
