Jean Macpherson Duffy is no stranger to controversy. As a registered nurse, university professor, and member of the California State Legislature, she has preached the message of personal advocacy when it comes to one's health care.
In her first book Ms. Duffy wrote of her own experiences with breast cancer, Breast Cancer Treatment--The Decisions Are Yours (2003). Motivated by the number of women who responded to her step-by-step approach, she has broadened her scope. Her newest book stimulates us to take charge of all our healthcare decisions.
PILOT Your Healthcare Journey: A Good Patient Could Be A Dead Patient (2008) is written in Jean Duffy's conversational style and contains many stories of friends who have faced a difficult diagnosis.
Ms. Duffy uses her experience as a nurse, her ability to teach, and her knowledge of how systems work to take the reader step-by-step from the initial doctor's visit through diagnosis and treatment. She was Assistant Professor of Nursing, California State University, Sacramento from 1971-1973 and Associate Professor from 1973-1976. She was a California State Assemblywoman in the 5th Assembly District from 1978- 1987. She was active in California's anti-drinking driver law, Alzheimer's Disease legislation, and limits on early release of parolees into local communities.
Jean Macpherson Duffy lives half time in Scotland and half time in northern California. She is married and the mother of five grown children and has 12 grandchildren. She is co-librarian for the First Presbyterian Church, Santa Rosa, CA and also the librarian for the Clan Macpherson Museum in Newtonmore, Scotland.
