Shana is the Vice Chair and former Chair of the Society for Medical Anthropology's Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco Study Group (ADTSG). The mission of ADTSG is to facilitate communication and collaboration among anthropologists engaged in the study of alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and other psychoactive substance use across cultures.
Shana founded the Florida Medical Anthropology Network (FMAN) in 2018. This network facilitates conversations, collaborations, and camaraderie among Florida-based medical anthropologists, and serves as a way to establish connections, communicate research, and share information about local health-related issues and initiatives.
