Marvin Samson understands what it means to pay it forward. Raised under challenging circumstances, he could not pursue his dream of becoming a pharmacist because he could not afford the education. Instead, he took night classes to earn a degree in chemistry and his career eventually spanned every phase of the pharmaceutical industry, from sweeping floors to building international organizations. He currently leads Samson Medical Technologies in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, the third successful startup of his career. He also holds five U.S. patents. His personal success led him to philanthropy and a desire to have a positive impact on young people growing up much like he did.
In addition to serving on Virtua Health’s board of trustees, his generosity and passion led him to support numerous initiatives here at Virtua, including our cancer center in Moorestown, which now bears his name.
