Speaker: Samantha Lammie, MD, MPH

Dr. Lammie is a rising family med/psych PGY-5 resident at the University of Cincinnati. She studied romance languages, infectious diseases, and vaccinology before finding her way to combined training and the world of integrated mental health. She took a 2-year hiatus from residency between PGY-3 and -4 years to complete a fellowship through the Epidemic Intelligence Service at CDC, where she worked in the Emergency Response and Recovery Branch. After residency, she is interested in pursuing outpatient psychiatry and collaborative care opportunities, as well as public mental health work in the context of humanitarian emergencies.





Moderator: Leopoldine Matialeu-Forde, MD

Dr. Matialeu was born and raised in Cameroon where she lived for 18 years. As such, she was exposed first-hand to the medical and mental health needs in a developing country. Dr. Matialeu moved to the US; encountered many challenges, including learning English, acclimating to the culture, and dealing with homelessness. Dr. Matialeu went on to attend Cañada College and transferred to UC Davis where she obtained her bachelor's in biochemistry and molecular biology. Dr. Matialeu attended UC Davis Medical School where she also participated in the Rural PRIME program, one of the underserved leadership tracks. She graduated from UCSD combined Family Medicine and Psychiatry program. She first attended AMP as a fourth-year medical student and has been involved ever since. 

Global health work has been one of her areas of interest ever since she moved to the United States. Throughout undergrad, medical school, and residency, she always sought global health experiences and opportunities. She served as one of the four Resident Fellow Member representatives and also the co-chair of the AMP global health committee as a medical student and now as a faculty co-chair. She looks forward to continuing to highlight the importance of global health work both at home and abroad through organizing our webinars, AMP GH presentations, educational resources on the AMP website, and finding novel ways to reach out to the wider AMP community.
