It’s Personal

Torrie Fields, MPH

Torrie Fields’s experience as a young uninsured person with cancer taught her firsthand how policy decisions can profoundly impact people’s lives. She now works to align social, political and medical systems to support person-centered care for individuals with life-limiting illnesses or at end of life. Torrie’s ability to combine data, messaging and passion makes her a powerful force in the movement to extend palliative care earlier and to all in need.
