“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.”
