Aside from her work at Duke, Derouin serves as an adolescent clinical expert and as current co-chair for the Adolescent Special Interest Group of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP). She is a former advocacy fellow for the School-based Health Alliance (formally the National Assembly of School-based Health Centers) and currently serves as the advocacy chair for the North Carolina Chapter of NAPNAP and as the past-president for the North Carolina School Community Health Alliance.
