Dr. Sloan is the quintessential fusion of her love for medicine and her passion to help others. Her work in medicine, and as an entrepreneur in the community and internationally, is demonstrated through her Medical Clinic in Haiti, two non-profits including ME&WE Inc. (Motivating and Empowering Women to Excel) where she has mentored nearly 100 women to become entrepreneurs and SLOAN STEM+Arts, a summer camp to expose minorities students to potential careers that will secure fiscal sustainability.
