Valerie Yontz, RN, MPH, PhD
Valerie Yontz is Associate Specialist and Practice Coordinator at the University of Hawaii (UH) Manoa Office of Public Health Studies, Department of Public Health Sciences. Through her experience in the Hawaii community, Dr. Yontz helps make linkages and placements for the university's MPH students' field practica. Valerie's teaching areas include health services, administration, planning, cultural competency, health policy, and gerontology. Valerie has participated in research on aging issues, health disparities, community-based participatory research, public health workforce training, and end-of-life decision making.
Prior to UH, Dr. Yontz worked 10 years at Kokua Kalihi Valley (KKV) Family Comprehensive Services, a federally funded community health center that served low-income public housing residents on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Valerie was the Quality Assurance Officer for this health center and created many major components of KKV's quality improvement system. As a gerontologist, Valerie's primary focus was the development of the health center's highly successful community-based elderly service program. The program became well-known to aging agencies for demonstrating that elders can exercise, eat right, improve their health, and age more successfully while staying longer in their own homes. Valerie has also served as Health Services Director for an assisted living facility and as Hospice Hawaii's Patient Care Coordinator before joining UH faculty.
Dr. Yontz has worked as an emergency room nurse, home health nurse, tuberculosis monitoring nurse, and nursing consultant. With her transcultural nursing background, she has worked overseas in Liberia, West Africa, training village health workers as a Peace Corps volunteer, and in Thailand, Malaysia, and throughout Southeast Asia, teaching and training Vietnamese and Cambodian refugees about health education topics and healthy behavior practices.

Leadership and Management Series Conducted For Hawaii's Community Health Centers
PPHTC's UH partner worked closely with the Hawaii Primary Care Association (HPCA) to help sponsor a six- part training series in leadership and management skills. The series was geared to middle and senior management employees from the 14-federally qualified community health centers in Hawaii. The series started with corporate compliance, and included best practices in human resources, financial management for new fiscal officers, creating systems for continuous quality improvement, conducting needs assessment, and public/community relations. More then 30 people from ten of the 14 HPCA health centers were trained including members from neighboring islands who flew to Oahu once a month to attend the training. Due to the success of this training series a second series is being requested.
