Sam Nemeth

Samuel ‘Sam’ Nemeth, a Master of Public Health student specializing in Population Aging at Rutgers School of Public Health, is currently investigating how prosocial behaviors help increase the chances of recovering from physical and cognitive impairments, and how using an mHealth app, the practice of medicine and public health supported by mobile devices, may improve mental health in older adults.

We spoke with Sam about his passion for population aging and public health, and why this intersection is crucial to recognize during Older Americans Month and beyond.
