No man is an island, entire of itself. Each is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” — Montaigne

Nancy Talbot

Ten years ago Gay Young of the NYCT introduced me to WellMet as the ideal way for a native New Yorker returning home to meet wonderful women working together to support grassroots organizations. It has been a perfect match. My professional and volunteer work has focused on the needs of underserved children and families. I lived for nearly 30 years in Chicago where I started as an investigative reporter for a nonprofit that documents the city’s struggles with race and poverty.  I continued my research, writing and analysis with the Irving Harris Foundation and served on the boards of the state child advocacy organization and Planned Parenthood. Next was a ten-year collaboration with a Northwestern neonatologist and UCLA professor on racial disparities in birth outcomes that resulted in numerous medical journal articles.  After my marriage to Jay, I moved to Cleveland where I worked closely with a coalition of child advocates that five years later became the Ohio state child advocacy organization. From 2000 to 2009 I was a trustee of the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, a Chicago foundation of the family of our beloved and recently deceased founding member, Vivian Donnelley.
