Samantha Adams Festschrift: How to be a Student and How to Mentor Students—A Remembrance of Dr. Samantha Adams, Who Did These and Everything Else So Well
03 July 2018 (online)
At the time of her death, Samantha Adams, PhD, was an Associate Professor at Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT), at the Law School, Tilburg University, Tilburg, the Netherlands. The Tilburg University announcement that Sam had passed away on December 13, 2017, offered a succinct description: Sam, who was reserved in professional settings, was warm and with good and positive humor in her interactions with others. In the earliest grief, these words seemed too little to capture all that we remember about Sam. In time, though, those simple words seemed to elevate themselves into the representative epitaph that they are. From the earliest days of Sam's first foray into American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) at the 2000 Symposium as a PhD student, Sam displayed acumen for interactions in which she maintained professionalism while actively building warm friendships and collaborations. What follows are remembrances of Sam's time as a student in the AMIA Student Working Group, Sam's early student work, and how she carried forward the standout qualities demonstrated in those early days in interactions with her own students.
