Empowering Patients and Caregivers

Trisha 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.
  • Since 2006, Trisha has been writing columns, articles, and blog posts – thousands of them! – across the web, for organizations such as About.com (now VeryWellHealth.com), NextAvenue, local newspapers, and more. Learn more about the writing Trisha has done over the years.
  • Today Trisha writes for patients at AdvoConnection.com, a directory of independent patient advocates who help patients like you find better health and medical outcomes.
