Empowering Patients and CaregiversTrisha Torrey has been Every Patient’s Advocate since her misdiagnosis experience in 2004. Since then her work has focused on patients, their access to good and decent care, their experiences with the healthcare system, and their health and medical outcomes.

To that end, she has been involved in many activities across the United States, from New England, to Southern California, from Florida to Alaska, and everywhere in between.

If you are a patient or caregiver, you may find some useful information in any of the following:

  • Trisha’s books for patients, both with titles that begin with You Bet Your Life! (because you do!) – can be found here.
  • Trisha speaks to groups of patients across the US.  Learn more about her speaking capabilities here.
  • From 2007 to 2014, Trisha was the patient empowerment expert at About.com.  More than 2,000 articles still appear on the site, addressing dozens of topics of interest to patients and caregivers.  Find them here.
  • Today Trisha’s articles are occasionally published at Next Avenue, a PBS website for adults age 50+.
