Samuel is currently working as a Public Health Policy Analyst with Northrop Grumman’s Health Protection and Promotion Operating Unit. His scope of work includes a wide range of policy issues including the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Service’s (CMS) rules and regulations, Blood, Organ, and Other Tissue Safety (BOOTS), sepsis (early detection and prevention), and antibiotic resistance and stewardship.
He received his Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences from Adventist University of Health Sciences, a master’s degree in Public Health from Mercer University, and a Juris Master’s in health law from Emory University School of Law.
His areas of interest include policy-based interventions that mitigate adverse health outcomes, increasing access to healthcare, and policy approaches to health systems (hospitals, nursing homes, and rehabilitation facilities) that will improve managed care outcomes and decrease racial disparities in health outcomes. He hopes to leverage his DrPH training to further expand his public heath policy interests, with the hopes of implementing policies that improve population health outcomes.
