Description

The Pulmonary Hypertension Association of Canada (PHA Canada) exists to empower the pulmonary hypertension community through support, education, advocacy, awareness, and research. We are currently seeking applications for the temporary, full-time position of Education Campaign Coordinator. The ideal candidate will possess a keen attention to detail, strong analytical skills, and the ability to communicate complex information to diverse audiences.


Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a rare, progressive, life-threatening disease affecting the arteries of the lungs for which there is currently no cure. PH shares its symptoms with other more common conditions, making it difficult to diagnose. As a result, many people with PH in Canada wait more than two years for an accurate diagnosis. Alarmingly, the median survival rate for PH patients without treatment is only two and a half years. PHA Canada’s early diagnosis campaign—Sometimes It’s PH—aims to increase awareness of PH among health care providers, reducing the diagnostic odyssey for patients and improving access to effective treatments.


Working under the supervision of the Executive Director, the Education Campaign Coordinator will be responsible for implementing the second phase of the Sometimes It’s PH Campaign. This will include building upon existing print and digital resources to enhance the educational content available and expand the campaign’s reach to various target audiences.



Responsibilities Include:


  • Collaborates with the Executive Director to assess priorities and develop a work plan in alignment with the existing campaign framework
  • Conducts research and consults with expert advisors on content development
  • Develops new educational content for distribution online and in print; collaborates with other staff on the design of new resource materials
  • Assists with community outreach to health care providers and relevant patient communities
  • Identifies and pursues appropriate outreach opportunities, including exhibiting at conferences/events, social media marketing, and grassroots initiatives


Qualifications & Experience:


  • In the process of completing a post-secondary degree in adult education, community development, public health/health policy, communications/marketing, or a related field
  • Excellent verbal and written communications skills
  • Experience with research; ability to analyze and organize complex information
  • Experience working collaboratively with diverse groups
  • Previous community outreach experience preferred
  • Good working knowledge of social media/social media marketing preferred
  • Working knowledge of French is an asset
  • Ability to work on personal laptop computer is an asset


As this position is partially funded through Service Canada’s Canada Summer Jobs Program, candidates must also meet the following eligibility criteria:


  • Be between 15 and 30 years of age at the start of the employment;
  • Have been registered as a full-time student in the previous academic year and intend to return to school on a full-time basis in the next academic year;
  • Be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person to whom refugee protection has been conferred under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act; and
  • Be legally entitled to work in Canada in accordance with relevant provincial or territorial legislation and regulations.
