Delaney Inman is a third-year student in the Manning College of Nursing and Health Sciences at UMass Boston, concentrating in Exercise and Health Science. Based in Boston for the past four years she has worked for local nonprofits such as Community Care for Kids as a Family Care and Provider specialist, where she organized community outreach and connected low-income families to affordable childcare so they could go to school or work. She is also a Camp Counselor at Camp Aranu’tiq, the first summer camp established for transgender, non-binary, and gender-nonconforming youth with the mission to build confidence, resilience, and community for campers and their families. In between work and class she volunteers at Rosie’s Place, the first women-only shelter in the US. She was drawn to their unique philosophy of maintaining the dignity of the poor and homeless women they serve who they call their guests. Only in her first semester at UMass Boston, Delaney is eager to branch out and explore other areas of public health as she furthers her education. With aspirations to continue on to get her MPH, Delaney is committed to gaining as much knowledge and experience as possible so that she may be an effective and impactful leader in public health.
