Valerie White

 

Valerie White DeLaCámara–she/her/hers–is the Administrative Coordinator for the Health Services, Policy & Practice Department where she is an appointed member of the School of Public Health’s Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee. Valerie joined Brown in 2013 with over nine years of higher education experience, many of which were spent as a copyeditor and writer in alumni publications. She brought this experience to her current role, where she is the department’s website editor and manages the department’s social media strategy and implementation.

Responsible for a broad range of administrative projects, Valerie supports aspects of both faculty affairs and the Health Services Research (HSR) PhD Program, in addition to managing
administrative operations for the Chair, the inaugural dean of the School and the HSR Program Director. Valerie considers it a privilege to support students on their journey through the Program and on to outstanding careers. She has found it particularly meaningful to work in the School during the pandemic supporting world-class researchers and educators, many of whose research focuses on disparities in healthcare that seeks to ensure equitable, inclusive and quality public health for all. These foundational principles–equity and inclusion–inform everything she does in both her personal and professional life.

Valerie will complete a Bachelor of Arts in English with a minor in Medieval and Renaissance Studies from the University of Massachusetts in 2022. Her visual rhetoric artwork has been featured in the 2021 Brown Arts Initiative Staff After Hours: Alphabetic Exhibition, the Rhode Island Historical Society’s RI COVID-19 Archive and will be featured during Staff Development Week 2021.
