Larri Short

Larri and her husband Steve Reilly moved to Santa Fe in 2014 from Washington, DC. Both are committed to spending the next phase of their careers as “professional volunteers.”  In addition to working with CFFNM, Larri serves on the Boards of two sister national organizations, the Patient Advocate Foundation (PAF) and the National Patient Advocate Foundation (NPAF).  PAF offers case management and drug co-pay assistance to patients with a variety of chronic and life-threatening diseases. NPAF is primarily engaged in research related to effective outreach to disadvantaged and underserved communities.

Larri retired in 2015 from a successful legal practice as an equity partner with Arent Fox LLP, a national law firm with offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Boston and Washington, DC, where she practiced health care law in Washington for 23 years. Larri represented pharmaceutical manufacturers, cancer care providers, and most of the national patient assistance foundations providing help with prescription drug co-payments and disease-specific case management service. Working with the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico has become a natural extension of that work and a tribute to her Dad, who died of cancer when Larri was in graduate school.
