Rising Voices of Narcolepsy Story Sharing Series: Meet Black Belt Dr. Mindi McKenna

“That’s what people with narcolepsy do—we work it out.”

This week, our Rising Voices of Narcolepsy Story Sharing live series continued on Sunday, March 29 with Dr. Mindi McKenna! Mindi shared her inspirational presentation and answered questions from live viewers.

The Rising Voices of Narcolepsy Story Sharing Series invites viewers to gather online to watch a Rising Voices of Narcolepsy trained speaker or writer present their story live via Project Sleep’s Facebook page. Project Sleep is proud to offer our monthly series as a weekly event for the next few months. At a time in which many people need connection more than ever, this will increase opportunities for people around the world to engage with and support one another.

About Mindi:

Dr. Mindi McKenna is a recently retired grandmother of five, with a third-degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, living in Kansas City. She has been living with narcolepsy for over 25 years and is sharing her story because she hopes to help accelerate diagnosis and improve treatment for this often misunderstood condition. As a speaker with Project Sleep’s Rising Voices of Narcolepsy program, she will help us all understand what it can be like to be diagnosed with and live with this serious sleep disorder.

About Rising Voices of Narcolepsy:

To improve public understanding of narcolepsy, Project Sleep’s Rising Voices of Narcolepsy program trains people with narcolepsy to share their stories through public speaking and writing with local communities, healthcare providers, news outlets, blogs and beyond. Combining the power of real-life stories with expert communication strategies, our Rising Voices of Narcolepsy trained speakers and writers are effectively raising awareness and reducing stigma for all those facing narcolepsy.
