The Empowered Patient Coalition is a consumer and advocate-led effort to inform, engage and empower the public to assume a greater role in their own medical treatment and in becoming a driving force for meaningful health care reform. The coalition is a California non-profit organization and a 501(c)(3) charitable organization as determined by the IRS.

The coalition’s mission is furthered by advocates Julia Hallisy and John Hallisy who experienced the great loss of a child and now has a clear vision of a health care system that is safe, effective, transparent and patient-centered.

Our goal is to partner with individuals, other advocates and consumer organizations to give the public a stronger voice in all health decisions. We strive to enable a new level of collaboration by facilitating the sharing of ideas and resources among all coalition members and participants and encourage the formation of powerful partnerships within the group that will lead to policy changes and quality health care for all.
