Sam Volkin's mission is to enable others to actualize their potential, at an individual level with his peers, and at a population-level through his work. An MPH and MBA graduate of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and CareyBusiness School, he uses his public health policy and systems background to figure out how changing one part of a system can improve the global whole. During his undergraduate studies at Cornell University, he worked in India, Tanzania, and Malawi to address stigmas associated with HIV in the local community. After several other projects abroad and a White House internship with President Barack Obama's Domestic Policy Council, he joined the U.S. State Department’s coordinating branch for PEPFAR, where he played a pivotal role in developing a standardized monitoring system of the quality of HIV services and expanding access to life-saving treatment to HIV-infected children in sub-SaharanAfrica. More recently, Sam has been working with local communities to respond and adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic. His writing on the COVID-19 pandemic has been published by Johns Hopkins University. During his personal time, Sam enjoys hiking, camping, and immersing in Judaic Studies.
