Samantha Seewald

Samantha Seewald is a rising senior from Pittsburgh, PA majoring in Biology, minoring in Psychology, and pursuing a certificate in Child Policy Research. She is passionate about community service and is involved in many service-oriented clubs at Duke, including Runway of Dreams (an organization that empowers people with disabilities through fashion), FEMMES+ (an educational outreach program for elementary school students who are underrepresented in STEM fields), and Challah for Hunger (an organization in which students bake and sell challah bread to raise money for charities that fight hunger). Through ReMed, she hopes to learn more about the intersection of healthcare and the humanities, specifically while working with patients who have complex care needs. She looks forward to applying these teachings while working at an Orthodontics practice this summer and in her future career as a dentist.
