Abstract

Diabetes affects African American women disproportionally; the common misconception is that it is a lifestyle disease born of junk food and excess. However, genetics, food insecurity, racism, poverty, and stress are causal. This dissertation, which uses participant–created data of 13 women, yields a unique and valuable understanding of the ontology of these women. Participant–created photo elicitation narrative interviewing works intersubjectively to facilitate narrative creation to be a powerful force in validating and recording the life–world of such women.
