Shana is an Executive Member of the 1000 Women Strong Board.
"I was inspired to serve on the Board for 1000 Women Strong because I'm excited to be at the forefront of this amazing Black women's movement.”
Shana Talbot graduated from Georgetown University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Healthcare Management and Policy. During college, she interned at Goldman Sachs and Lehman Brothers, which prompted her interest in healthcare finance.
After graduation, she began her career in hospital finance at Memorial Sloan Kettering Center for several years before becoming an implementation consultant. This consulting opportunity allowed her to develop technology to improve revenue cycle management for multiple healthcare organizations and hospitals across the country. However, her career in healthcare management and finance came to an end when she decided to return to school to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a medical doctor.
In 2017, she obtained her Masters of Science in Biomedical Sciences and in 2018 began her medical school career at Drexel University. She is currently a fourth-year medical school student who is currently interested in pursuing Internal Medicine or Obstetrics & Gynecology after graduation. She has participated in numerous research projects at Memorial Sloan Cancer Research Center, Reading Hospital, and Drexel University and countless community health fairs/events in the Philadelphia area.
She is passionate about primary care and women's health and plans to dedicate her medical career to addressing and researching initiatives to help reduce the racial and ethnic disparities in healthcare.
