Can One Mother’s Journey Spark a Revolution in Diabetes Advocacy?

Nationwide — In a world where diabetes disproportionately impacts communities of color, one woman’s journey is poised to change the game. Constantine Alleyne, a visionary leader with a diverse background spanning two decades in correctional health expertise and a trailblazing founder of the Civilian Corrections Academy, is proud to announce the official launch of the Kendall Wyche Foundation. Driven by her personal journey as a mother and caregiver to a type 1 diabetic daughter. Constantine boasts a diverse array of credentials, encompassing a pursuit of a Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership, an Executive MBA, and esteemed certifications from institutions such as Cornell University, solidifying her as an unparalleled leader driving this transformative movement. Alleyne’s mission is clear: to empower individuals, families, and communities to thrive despite the challenges of diabetes.

The foundation’s multifaceted approach encompasses groundbreaking initiatives such as the “Field of Dreams” program, “Youth Voices Unveiled” initiative, “E.A.T.” (Enriched Awareness of Type 1) program, and the “Diabetes Mural Project,” all aimed at empowering individuals and communities affected by diabetes. Our vision extends far beyond managing the condition; it’s about rewriting the narrative and creating a world where everyone has access to resources and support, regardless of their circumstances. As we navigate the process of obtaining our 501(c)(3) status, we’re excited to embark on a journey of partnership, collaboration, and transformation. Our soft launch on January 17, 2024, marked the beginning of an incredible movement, with plans for our flagship event, the Field of Dreams, set to take place in the summer of 2024.

Alleyne, a true powerhouse in her own right, brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the table. She has been named one of the Top 100 Women Leaders of Connecticut 2022 by Women We Admire, nominated for Business Person of the Year by the Amistad Center for Art & Culture, and honored by the Monroe College School of Criminal and Social Justice as an exceptional leader for 2024 Black History Month. With a track record of leadership and a commitment to excellence, Constantine is poised to lead the Kendall Wyche Foundation to new heights of impact and influence. As the author of her debut book The Cage Was Her Cocoon: A Journey from Prison Administrator to Entrepreneur, and the visionary behind Civilian Pulse and Criminal Justice Insights: Beyond the Bars, Alleyne’s commitment to driving systematic change is unwavering. Her role as a Senior Manager at Raytheon Technologies further underscores her versatility. She truly defies categorization, radiating wisdom and expertise wherever she steps, setting the tone with her unparalleled credibility and business acumen.

With Alleyne at the helm, the Kendall Wyche Foundation is poised to make a significant impact. Their three new diabetes books including Mommy Please Don’t Let Me Die Here: A Mother & Daughter’s Courageous Journey Through Type 1 Diabetes offer high-caliber content designed to educate, empower, and inspire. From advocacy initiatives to educational workshops and community outreach programs, we’re committed to addressing issues of health equity head-on. Join us in our mission to shift rooms, change perceptions, and drive real progress toward a healthier, more equitable future.
