Lauren Kornegay

Founder and Executive Director of Endo Black Incorporated

Lauren R. Kornegay, a proud Oxon Hill, MD native and Morgan State University graduate, was diagnosed with endometriosis at the age of 20, igniting a journey filled with pain and challenges. This diagnosis brought forth a journey filled with pain, challenges, exhaustion, and uncertainty, all commonly associated with this disorder.
