August 19, 2019
Donna Torrisi and Tarik Khan were honored as two of Philadelphia’s “Influencers of Health Care” by the Philadelphia Inquirer. Torrisi is retiring this year as director of RHD’s Family Practice & Counseling Network, which she led since RHD founded FPCN in 1992. FPCN is now the largest nurse-led health care network in the country. Kahn is a family nurse practitioner at FPCN and a tireless advocate for health care for people in need.
“Growing up, I recognized advocacy as a common trait in nurses through my mom, and I was later attracted to this field that is dedicated to helping make people’s lives better,” Kahn said.
“I had the good fortune to be asked to create a model of care to serve residents of public housing,” Torrisi said. “I saw the chance to fulfill a dream to create a model of care that provided a compassionate environment for staff and patients.”
