As part of her dedication to her field, she is a member of the Society for Pediatric Research, the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society, the Infectious Diseases Society of America, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Society of Microbiology, among other organizations.

In addition to her primary efforts, Dr. Tan serves on several professional committees and boards, including as a member of the Board of Scientific Counselors, Office of Infectious Diseases of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, chairperson for the nominations committee for the Section on Infectious Diseases of the American Academy of Pediatrics and a member of the vaccines and related biological products advisory committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
