Meagan Thompson is a native of Clarksdale, Mississippi. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Mississippi in May 2011. As a registered nurse, she was quickly afforded many opportunities to lead various nursing unit initiatives which sparked an interest in hospital operations. This interest led her to the University of Alabama at Birmingham where she graduated with a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Science in Health Administration in 2016. During her tenure in hospital operations, she has successfully grown profitable service lines, increased access to care for underserved populations, negotiated system contracts for multi-million dollar savings, and achieved quality/regulatory accreditations for organizations. Recently, she graduated with her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree in December 2019 from Georgetown University. While pursuing her doctorate degree, she realized that addressing health disparities impacting African American communities was her passion. Her research focused on the Effect of a Spirituality-Based Educational Intervention on Knowledge, Attitudes, and Perceived Barriers for African American Women Regarding Breast Health. Her goal is to increase access for African Americans to receive quality health care services through health care policy.
