JOB ANNOUNCEMENT

Do you share our vision of a country without health disparities? Do you have a passion for transforming systems to better serve individuals and families? Are you a leader who loves building new programs and ensuring they are operating efficiently?

…If the answer is yes, this may be the job for you!

JOB DESCRIPTION

IMPaCT, a nationally-recognized, evidence based healthcare intervention, harnesses the power of Community Health Workers (CHWs), trained laypeople who share life experience with the people they serve. The model, which was designed and tested at the University of Pennsylvania Health System, has been proven to improve health outcomes and return $2.47 for every $1 invested. This has fueled replication across the country - more than 40 organizations in 18 states are now using the model and demand continues to grow.

We’re looking for passionate, energetic leaders to build CHW programs across the country, including key locations on the East coast and in the Pacific Northwest. Directors will provide vision and leadership for the program’s launch and scale in a target region during an exciting period of strategic growth. 

Please note that this is not a position at the Penn Center for CHWs– this is to serve as the CHW program director for a healthcare organization replicating IMPaCT.

KEY DUTIES

  • Lead program design, deployment, and scale across key sites in target region
  • Build and sustain partnerships within healthcare and local communities
  • Continually improve the program based on input from CHWs, clinicians, and members served

 PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS

  • At least five years of experience in a leadership role with responsibility for developing program and strategy 
  • A track record of maintaining high quality programs and using data to inform decision-making
  • Master’s degree; preference for MPA, MPH, MSW, or MBA
  • Passion for improving the lives of lower-income individuals and families
