She is a member of both the National Organization for Human Services (NOHS) and the National Association of Black Social Workers (NABSW) and inducted into both Tau Upsilon Alpha-Human Services Honor Society and Phi Alpha-Social Work Honor Society. A committed life-long leaner, Dr. White continues to research in her areas of interest, collective, community, cultural, and cumulative trauma.
