Center for Womens Health Research

David Samson, MBA

Managing Director

David J. Samson joined the Center in October of 2013 as its Managing Director and will oversee and facilitate growth through Strategic Management, Organizational Leadership, Fundraising, Teaching and Mentoring.

New to Colorado, David will be immersing himself in the greater Denver community much as he did in his role as Vice President and Chief Development Officer for Rainbow Hospice & Palliative Care.  During his 15+ years at Rainbow, David provided strategic leadership for organizational growth, capacity building, community relevance and mission effectiveness.  He was responsible for the overall leadership of the organization as well as fundraising and public relations initiatives including major gifts, Board recruitment and training, special events, volunteer management, grant writing and endowment growth.

With a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from North Park University in Chicago, David’s skillsets and experience will be a solid match for the growth opportunities outlined for the CWHR.
