About the Author
When Trisha Torrey was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of lymphoma in 2004, she was a marketing consultant who was naïve to the dysfunction the American healthcare system.
But she got smart, fast. She learned that the possibility of excellent care was too easily and frequently eclipsed by miscommunication and mistakes. She also learned that if she didn’t stick up for herself, and insist on the help she needed, she would not get it. The more empowered she became, the more she realized there was a possibility she had no lymphoma. Three months after her diagnosis, she proved she was right; she had no cancer.
Once Trisha put her misdiagnosis odyssey behind her, she decided it was up to her to apply her skills to teaching others how to navigate the dangerous landscape of American healthcare. She sold her marketing company in 2006 to devote herself full time to the cause.
Today Trisha calls herself “Every Patient’s Advocate.” She is the founder of AdvoConnection.com and the Alliance of Professional Health Advocates which support the business and client service aspects of a health advocate’s work. She writes regularly for a number of online outlets, speaks to groups of patients and professionals, and teaches workshops.
She is the author of six books all focused on supporting patients' healthcare journeys, and helping health and patient advocates and care managers establish and grow successful practices.
This book, The Health Advocate’s Start and Grow Your Own Practice Handbook, is the second in her Health Advocate Career Series.
Trisha has appeared on, or has been quoted by CNN, MSNBC, the Today Show, Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, O Magazine, U.S. News and World Report, NPR, Scientific American, Angie’s List Magazine, Bottom Line Publications, and other media.
