About Carol W. Samuelson

To recognize her courage, tenacity, and leadership in promoting quality health and educational services to the public, in 2002 her friends and colleagues established the Carole W. Samuelson Endowed Lectureship in Public Health Practice at the UAB School of Public Health.

This endowed lectureship honors Dr. Samuelson for her outstanding service through years of devoted commitment to the Jefferson County Department of Health as well as many other community and statewide organizations interested in providing quality health care. In all her professional and community activities, Dr. Samuelson led with diligence and innovation while always placing the public first. This lectureship was created to honor her passion for excellence as well as to continue her tradition of intellectual innovation and community involvement.
