Samantha Hayes is a Program Specialist with the Global Critical Care Transversal Program for the Department of Global Pediatric Medicine. 

Samantha received a Bachelor of Science in biology from Southern Illinois University and a Master of Public Health with a concentration in epidemiology and biosecurity disaster preparedness from Saint Louis University. While at Saint Louis University, Samantha co-led the COVID-19 contact tracing program. She also collaborated with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Washington University in St. Louis to evaluate COVID-19 transmission within K-12 school settings.

She furthered her career in research as a Clinical Research Coordinator II at Washington University in St. Louis, where she led a cluster-randomized trial that sought to assess COVID-19 testing strategies within five K-12 school districts. As her focus shifted to data analysis and management, she began examining epidemiological trends of staphylococcus aureus, developing databases for longitudinal research studies, and overseeing datasets from various studies.

Samantha is excited to bring her expertise in project management and data analysis to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and the Global Critical Care Transversal Program.
