Pamela Loring,M.Ed. (she/her), is a writer and editor who lives in Hull, Massachusetts. She is the founder of the Salty Quill Writers’ Retreat for Women; is on the alumni board for GrubStreet, a Boston-based literary organization; and helps care for a parent with Parkinson’s disease. She co-founded a citizen action group opposing a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal site in a national park, helped establish an animal shelter, and helped fundraise and produce events for a number of local nonprofits.

Pamela has been on the Partners HealthCare Biobank Community Advisory Panel (CAP) since 2016 and All of Us New England’s CAP since 2017. She believes that access and representation are fundamental to health care equity, but equity also requires that patients have a voice, believe in the right to use that voice, and have access to health care professionals who will hear it. For her, the All of Us Research Program delivers all of that, with commitment to diversity and inclusion as a basic tenet and an extraordinary potential to further medical knowledge.
