About the Author:

Donna L. Torrisi, M.S.N., co-wrote, in 1991 a National Bureau of Primary Health Care/Health Resources Service Administration (H.R.S.A.) grant to provide health care to residents of public housing. She became the director of this project and opened a nurse-managed health center in the Abbottsford Public Housing Development in Philadelphia in 1992. Since then, her program has received three expansion grants, one in 1994, 2002, and 2003. The health centers are known collectively as The Family Practice and Couseling Network. The sites have been recipients of multiple awards including the H.R.S.A. National Models That Work Award and the Smith Kline Beecham Community Impact Award. Ms. Torrisi received the Villanova University Leadership in Nursing Award, the University of Pennsylvania Lillian Brunner Sholstis Award for Excellence in Nursing Practice, the Pennsylvania Nurses Association Leadership Award for Innovative Practice, and the National Alliance for Resident Services in Affordable and Assisted Housing Practitioner of the Year Award.She was a key leader in the State of Pennsylvania in an effort that culminated in legislative change redefining "primary care provider" to include nurse practitioners. This gave nurse practitioners entrée into managed care as participating providers. She has published and lectured on the nurse-managed model, the art of negotiating with managed care organizations, and on integrating behavioral health and primary care. She is a founding member and the first chairperson of the National Nursing Centers Consortium, and has been a faculty member for the Institute for Health Improvement Depression Collaborative. She is currently completing her final year as a Robert Wood Johnson Executive Nurse Fellow.
