JOB OPENING FOR BCCHC PROGRAM SPECIALIST FOR PREVENTION
The Bernalillo County Community Health Council is hiring a full-time Program Specialist to participate in a dynamic team for planning and implementing prevention activities of our Bernalillo County Opioid Accountability Initiative. The Opioid Accountability Initiative is a large multi-sectoral collective impact strategy to align the activities of government, non-profit, business, and community leaders to strengthen the prevention, treatment, harm reduction, and law enforcement/criminal justice systems in Bernalillo County in order to reduce incidence of opioid overdose deaths. This position will focus specifically on the prevention component of the initiative.
This is NOT a direct service position, but does require some familiarity with gaps in the current prevention systems, as well as an understanding of the institutions, organizations and leadership that play a role in these systems, and how policies can impact the effective functioning of those systems. Our preference is that the person we hire live and work in Bernalillo County with a personal investment in improving the health of our community.
Please submit a resume with 3 references listed, and a letter of interest that will serve as a writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, October 6, 2017. Let us know in the letter your background and why you are interested in this position.
The position will start as soon as possible for the right candidate. Please submit any questions by email (no phone calls, please).
This Mayoral Candidate Forum, co-sponsored by multiple organizations and entities with a shared interest in equity, community health, and early childhood development, will be an opportunity to share with the mayoral candidates information on topics important to Albuquerque residents.
Doors open and light refreshments will be served beginning at 5:00 p.m. The program will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m. The event is free, but registration is required due to limited space.
Communities Leading Healthy Change
We all want to be healthy, but that can be hard if the right supports are not in place. For example, it can be difficult to eat healthy when it is too expensive to buy fresh and local fruits and vegetables. They may not be sold in one’s neighborhood, or they are not always available in our schools. It can be difficult to be physically active when places like streets, sidewalks and parks are not easy, safe, and enjoyable to use. And it can be difficult to manage a chronic disease, like diabetes, when you are not connected to a system that helps you to do so.
