Physician & Inspirational Leader
Dr. Sampson Davis was raised as the fifth of six children in Newark, one of New Jersey's poorest cities. As a child Dr. Davis grew-up in cramped living quarters, surrounded by fragmented families, crime, and drugs. Still, he was a good student, able to strike the fragile balance between being smart yet socially acceptable on the streets. It was this combination of skills, Dr. Davis says, that were most critical to his survival. While attending University High School in Newark, Dr. Davis met Dr. Rameck Hunt and Dr. George Jenkins, two fellow students who together made a promise to become doctors. Dr. Davis and his two childhood friends each successfully fulfilled their pact and today Dr. Davis is a board certified Emergency Medicine Physician. Read More >

"Fantastic evening with Dr. Sampson Davis at William Peace University. Thank you for investing in our students and challenging them to be the best they can be."
"Dr. Sampson Davis was phenomenal and everyone that he spoke with was moved by his testimony and message to empower lives."
"Dr. Davis was PHENOMENAL! We need more people like him in this world who truly care about making a difference and giving back to the community. We had over 200 people in attendance, half of whom were high school and college students. The students were so inspired by him. It was hard getting him out of the room at the end of his speech as so many students wanted the chance to take photos and/or speak with him. The medical professionals, who could relate to him from that perspective, were also very pleased with his presentation. So much so, that our CEO indicated he may be interested in having Dr. Davis come back for one of our leadership events next year. That is always good news."
“He walked to podium as if he were walking into the living room. We were so happy to have Dr. Sampson Davis deliver the keynote message at our Annual Meeting and Luncheon in Indianapolis. His calm manner and engaging ways made 400+ Hoosiers immediately lean forward and listen. Although Dr. Davis is from the east coast and was unknown to us, we felt instantly comfortable and familiar...like listening to the cousin you only see on holidays. He has a way of reframing the sad and depressing experiences into a message of inspiration and call to action."
