Whitney Hewlett Noël

Senior Program Analyst

She, Her, Hers


I develop and provide technical assistance for DULCE, with a focus on the communities adapting the program for expansion into the prenatal period. I also support the data analysis and continuous quality improvement (CQI) work for DULCE.

I do this work because

I believe in centering the needs and strengths of communities that are most affected by inequities, and I am deeply committed to improving the health and well-being of families.

I am most proud of 

Leading the successful implementation of a perinatal needs assessment to uncover the ways in which racism and social determinants of health impact prenatal care utilization for Black moms living in Wards 5, 7, and 8 in Washington, D.C.

When the day is done

I love to spend time with my family, watch terrible movies with my husband, travel, exercise, meditate, and cook or bake something delicious.
