Sleep Apnea Community Advocate Meaghan KennedyMeaghan Kennedy is a 27-year old from New Jersey. She was diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea during her undergraduate college experience. She was continuously falling asleep in her classes and doing her homework. She was beginning to notice that her tiredness was directly impacting her life and leading to multiple difficulties. She took the necessary steps and soon became a 21-year-old with a sleep machine in her college dorm room! Despite initial difficulties of the novelty of the CPAP machine, she believes that her CPAP machine has greatly impacted her life and she is grateful for it each day!

She wants to share her story and her experiences with OSA and her CPAP machine because her story is one that you often don’t hear about. She was 21 when she was diagnosed with no underlying reasons for this diagnosis. She hopes to be here to share support, ideas, stories, and opinions for all those who need and/or want to hear.

Currently, she lives in Philadelphia and attends Temple University’s Masters of Occupational Therapy Program. She is set to graduate in December of 2020. She then hopes to continue living and working in Philadelphia with underserved communities to address childhood trauma and individual, systemic and community oppression and racism.

She loves spending time with her family and friends in her free time (which is not super often as a graduate student). She also LOVES her adopted pit-bull and could talk about her and share photos of her all day long! She is also a big nerd and loves reading whenever she has free time! She is looking forward to and is very grateful to be a part of this community and is excited to learn from you and engage in conversations with you!
