Mila Clarke Buckley

Patient Leader

Mila Clarke Buckley started her blog The Hangry Woman after wanting to learn more about her own type 2 diabetes diagnosis. When she noticed the stigma, and shame surrounding other patients willingness to open up about the disease, she decided to live boldly, and share an honest perspective of living a good life with type 2 diabetes. Her goal is to change the way type 2 diabetes is understood by the general public. Mila's work has been featured in Healthline, WebMD, Travel Noire, and the Houston Press. She continues her advocacy work with Novo Nordisk as a Disease Experience Expert Panelist and shares ways pharmaceutical companies can better connect to the type 2 diabetes patient experience.
