C-TAC would like to congratulate Torrie Fields, MPH, senior manager of advanced illness and palliative care for Blue Shield of California, who has received the 2019 Leadership Award from the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California.
During the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California’s Annual Palliative Care Summit on April 9, she was honored “for her leadership in “developing and implementing Blue Shield’s home-based palliative care program to help improve the quality of life for individuals with serious or life-limiting illnesses, and their families.”
Torrie Fields has worked as a consultant and curriculum developer for C-TAC, as well as the Center to Advance Palliative Care and the California State University Palliative Care Institute.
She holds leadership positions with a variety of organizations, serving as the co-director of the Center to Advance Palliative Care Quality Alignment Hub, member of the board of directors of the Social Work Hospice Palliative Network, and co-founder of the Blue Cross Blue Shield serious illness workgroup and the California Advanced Illness Collaborative.
A vital C-TAC partner, Torrie Fields will be joining us for a virtual roundtable on May 16 to share insights on innovative approaches to dementia care.
C-TAC congratulates Torrie Fields on receiving this honor and we look forward to continuing our work together.
