Dr. Julia Hallisy is a practicing dentist in San Francisco, California. In 1989, Dr. Hallisy’s late daughter, Katherine, was diagnosed at five months of age with bilateral retinoblastoma. Dealing with Kate’s life-threatening diagnosis marked the beginning of a 20-year involvement in our healthcare system. The combination of her scientific training, her work as a healthcare provider, and guiding a child through a chronic illness has afforded her invaluable insight as an advocate for patients.

 

The many lessons she learned during Kate’s life became the foundation for her book, The Empowered Patient: Hundreds of life-saving facts, action steps and strategies you need to know.  Dr. Hallisy works at The Empowered Patient Coalition non-profit organization and has worked with the California Nurses Association, the IOM Initiative on the Future of Nursing and is a member of the leadership council for the California Regional Coalition working to implement the IOM recommendations.
