Terri Fields Hosler, MPH, RD

Director (ret.), Shasta County Public Health

Terri Fields Hosler joined Shasta County Public Health in 2001 and was serving as the Director until her retirement in July 2019.  A Registered Dietitian with 25 years of public health experience, she created a county-wide collaborative focused on childhood obesity called Healthy Shasta.  Terri applied lessons learned from that cross-sector partnership to address Shasta County’s social determinants of health, through the promotion of educational attainment and prevention of Adverse Childhood Experience (ACEs).  

In 2011 she helped establish Shasta Strengthening Families, an ACEs prevention collaborative, that includes over 30 community partner organizations.  Terri coordinated ACE Interface training in Shasta County by Dr. Robert Anda and Laura Porter, resulting in 36 master trainers from multiple disciplines that have reached thousands of residents on the science of ACEs.  Terri is a Master ACE Interface trainer and has presented on Adverse Childhood Experiences statewide.  In 2018 she represented state public health directors on the AB 340 Trauma Screening Advisory Workgroup that defined the scope and supported funding for California’s ACEs Aware initiative.
Terri has a Bachelor’s in Dietetics from UC Davis, a Master’s in Public Health from the University of Minnesota, and completed her Dietetics Internship at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.  As a consultant, she continues her work statewide to help rural communities address their high ACE scores and break generational cycles through collaboration, policy and system changes
