Speaker Bio

Dr. Tara Grabowsky is an expert in the field of healthcare analytics. Currently, she works for McKinsey & Co., where she leads data strategy for the Pharmaceutical and Medical Products Practice. She originally trained as a physician and practiced internal medicine for over a decade. In 2014, she transitioned from clinical medicine to industry, where she helped to build a healthcare analytics company as the Chief Medical Officer. By leveraging partnerships with data vendors, payors, academic partners, and patient advocacy groups, the company employed advanced analytics to answer medical affairs, commercial, and clinical pharmaceutical questions. Dr. Grabowsky worked previously for Johnson & Johnson in its regulatory affairs department. She graduated from Dartmouth College, attended Stanford Medical School, and completed her internal medicine residency at Harvard’s Brigham and Women's Hospital.
In addition, Dr. Grabowsky was recently named one of 12 Power Women in Bioscience by the Philadelphia Business Journal. This recognition highlighted her combined skill sets of advanced analytic strategy, clinical medicine, and entrepreneurship.

Tara is a committed mentor and works with local and national women's organizations to spearhead efforts around women in science, technology, and artificial intelligence. Further, whenever Tara speaks at a conference, she welcomes individual conversations with women who are looking for advice on the next steps in their careers. "I tell each woman to find her own voice and never let anyone take it away. There are so many personalities and value systems in the business world -- I want to show people that you can be in that world and still stay true to the core of who you want to be."
