Spring 2016 Fellows Yearbook

Sara Pike Primary Care, GW

Denton Shanks Family Medicine, Unity

Mary Shelton Pediatrics, Children’s National

My name is Sara Pike, and I am from Chicago, IL. I went to undergrad at Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN and then medical school at Rush medical College in Chicago. I am a current PGY2 in the internal medicine program at George Washington University Hospital. Health care policy is interesting to me because it helps form guidelines in which desired outcomes can be achieved. My experience in this area is limited so I am excited to expand by knowledge base on health care policy, especially in our nation’s capital!

Denton Shanks grew up in Liberty, Missouri. He completed his Master's of Public Health at Drexel University in Philadelphia and medical school at Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. He is currently completing his residency in Family Medicine in Washington DC with Unity Health Care. I enjoy utilizing disruptive healthcare innovations & technologies and global public health & development to help discover sustainable solutions for individuals and communities. I am devoted to working in the community, leading through service, and reaching out to the larger world in an effort to promote health for all. I'm interested in learning more about policy related to the transformation of population health, personalized individual care, telemedicine, and mobile health.

I am a 3rd year Pediatric resident at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC. Originally from Richmond, VA, I attended medical school at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, VA. I am interested in a career in general pediatrics and throughout residency have become interested in advocacy, through various opportunities afforded by attending residency in our capital. Through the health policy fellowship, I hope to further my education and gain experience that I will continue to use as I begin my career.
