Meagan Lantz, MSHS, PA-C, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Cognitive Neuroscience & Evolutionary Psychology from Harvard and continued her Physician Assistant education at George Washington University in Washington, DC. Meagan recently joined Stanford Healthcare as a Cardiothoracic Surgery Advanced Practice Provider (APP) fellow and is looking forward to starting her PA career focusing on the intricacies of caring for cardiothoracic surgical patients. Meagan first discovered her interest for cardiothoracic surgery while working as a clinical intern on the heart-lung transplant team at St. Vincent's Hospital in Darlinghurst, Australia. This interest was solidified when she shadowed a CT surgery team at Holy Cross hospital in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Meagan also has a deep passion for wellness, nutrition, and exercise which helped her serve as the founder and chapter lead of the first PA focused Medicine in Motion chapter at George Washington University. Medicine in Motion is a non-profit organization founded in 2017 focusing on reducing clinician and student burnout through fitness, community, and philanthropy. As a former Division I softball player at Harvard, Meagan is passionate about teamwork, fitness, and promoting overall wellness within the community and looks to bring this excitement to her new role at Stanford Health Care.
