The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Meghan Combs as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in healthcare. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting 850,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.

“I’m pleased to welcome Meghan into this exceptional group of professional women,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her outstanding work as a Clinical Research Fellow and her continued pursuit of professional excellence illustrates her commitment to her chosen field.”

Meghan Combs has always had an interest in the science of medicine, as well as the business aspect of the healthcare industry. She recently finished a one-year research fellowship at the University of Chicago, where she learned to utilize group thinking and novel investigative techniques to elucidate the efficiency, both in execution, as well as through monetary, supply chain and human capital of surgical techniques.

Dr. Combs’ role was to curate the surgeries and act as liaison between the operating room staff and graduate students. Due to experience, she was able to develop survey and data analysis of key stakeholders for the various specialties within the department of surgery. All of her findings were presented to senior-level management officers.

As a trained Medical Doctor, Dr. Combs is extremely knowledgeable about medicine, pathology and skills such as surgical technique and diagnostics. One of her greatest strengths is her ability to communicate and effect change in management. She has training in intuitional review board proposal development for research and has worked with officers from a department of clinical research, as well as grant writing and quarterly reporting for federally funded grants. “I am interested in bringing my skills to intuitions and bodies of providers and to develop a system of collaborative innovation,” she said.
