See Me Speak on June 27 at 12 pm CST! Surviving Graduate School While Managing Your Mental and Physical Health

Next Tuesday (June 27 at Noon-1 pm CST), I’ll be giving a (virtual) talk at my alma mater, Northwestern University, about how I navigated graduate school with mental (bipolar) and physical health challenges (chronic pain, fatigue). I share insights on finding allies, talking with professors, and other strategies that worked for me. I’d love to see you there. You can register HERE at this link or click the purple button below.

Hi there! I am a patient advocate, writer, and public speaker most well known for my TEDx Talk, “How to Get Stuff Done When You Are Depressed.” As someone who is juggling 5 illnesses: bipolar 2, myasthenia gravis, endometriosis, psoriasis, and asthma, I’m passionate about helping people who navigate life with both chronic physical & emotional pain.
