Torrey joined CHP/PCOR in August 2009 as a fellow in the VA Physician Post-residency Fellowship in Health Services Research and Development program, following the completion of her Palliative Care fellowship at the combined PAVA and Stanford program. Her health services interests focus on disparities in end-of-life care and how standards and delivery of such care will be affected by the aging population, particularly in the United States. She has received an AB in Chemistry from Princeton University, and MD and PhD in biochemistry from NYU, and completed internal medicine residency at Stanford. She is currently working on a Masters in Health Services Research at Stanford. When not working, she is hopefully running, getting caught up on a ten year backlog of recreational reading, or enjoying time walking in SF or working in her garden with her husband Marcus and her two cats, Suki and Marin.
