Samuel Yeboah-Manson

Samuel Yeboah-Manson is a rising senior at South Brunswick High School. He is very service-driven and is especially passionate about public health, serving as the Vice-President of his school’s Students For Public Health Club where he has raised more than $1,000 for health-based charities. Sam enjoys learning about neuroscience and bio-psychology and has recently begun an independent study research project where he aims to investigate the neural mechanisms that underlie certain racial prejudices and how such prejudices are translated into concrete actions. Additionally, he has participated in many academic camps such as the BioCONECT Oncology Leadership Development program at Rutgers University where he spent a week researching breast cancer, and even got to review biopsies from cancer survivors. He has also attended the Johns Hopkins Global Health Leaders Conference where he spent the summer learning about different global health issues from distinguished scientists from all over the world. At the end of this conference, he presented about race-based medicine and its ill effects on minorities to his fellow attendees. Independent from his academic interests, Samuel enjoys literature, running, and hanging out with friends and family. In the future, he hopes to provide accessible and quality healthcare to under-served communities.
