A Troublemaker and Changemaker: The Valerie Mills Interview

Published: 12 October, 2020

Dr. Val Mills shares her fascinating story about growing up large. The stigma and judgment she faced throughout her life never caused her to stop pressing forward toward her goals.

A self-avowed “troublemaker”, she fought against weight discrimination and continues to fight for her own health and to uplift others with similar health issues. Only in recent years was she diagnosed with lipolymphedema and she shares the challenges of managing her condition while facing an often skeptical and unresponsive medical community and insurance system.
