Samuel Saidu

Vice President

I am Samuel Faraday Saidu, a devoted public health practitioner originating from the picturesque West African nation of Sierra Leone. Armed with a bachelor's degree in public health from Brigham Young University-Idaho, I am currently pursuing a master's degree in public health with a specialization in Epidemiology at North Dakota State University.

My journey within the realm of public health has been profoundly inspiring. It commenced with roles at esteemed non-governmental organizations like Caritas International, PLAN International, and Save the Children International, all based in Sierra Leone. These experiences not only broadened my horizons but also fortified my commitment to effecting positive change in the field of public health, particularly in underserved regions.

Amid the global pandemic of 2021, I took on the pivotal role of a Community Health Worker at the Bear River Health Department in Logan, Utah. Here, I made significant contributions to the ongoing battle against COVID-19. My unwavering dedication and service during these challenging times garnered commendation.

Presently, I serve as a Graduate Research Assistant at the Center for Social Research at North Dakota State University. In this capacity, I continue to contribute actively to the field of public health through research and academic endeavors. My work not only underscores my dedication to enhancing public health but also underscores my resolute determination to become a leading epidemiologist in the field.
