Dr. Whitney DeCamp
Dr. Whitney DeCamp, who is an Associate Professor at Western Michigan University, worked at the Center for Drug and Health Studies from 2007 to 2011 on a number of projects, such as the Delaware School Survey, Youth Risk Behavior Survey, College Risk Behavior Survey, SPF-SIG, and the Delaware School Health Profiles. For Dr. DeCamp, one of the more helpful aspects of working at the Center was the experience that he gained from managing and analyzing large
datasets, which has been invaluable and helps him with nearly everything he does! Dr. DeCamp also
got great experience learning about the research process, how to establish and
maintain vital connections in the research community, and how to responsibly
delegate to and to supervise those assisting with research. Dr. DeCamp states that his favorite part of working at CDHS was "the people who I got to work with. I always enjoyed coming
to work, even on days when I had a lot of work to do, and it was because it
was a great environment to work in."
