Patient advocate and friend Kristal Kent joined me, host Sharon Sayler to talk about how we can intentionally and unintentionally get siloed or put in easy-to-label boxes.’ When Kristal and I get together, it’s a free-flowing conversation about our wellness journey, the thrivers’ mindset, and advocacy.

• Steering clear of allowing your identity to be wrapped up by your diagnosis,
