10101 - Bilingual Outreach Associate (Part-Time, Temporary)
Bilingual Outreach Associate
The Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNYC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the health and well-being of all New Yorkers. In partnership with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), FPHNYC incubates innovative public health initiatives implemented by DOHMH to advance community health throughout the city. It facilitates partnerships, often new and unconventional, between the government and the private sector to develop, test, and launch new initiatives. These collaborations speed the execution of demonstration projects, effect expansion of successful pilot programs, and support rapid implementation to meet the public health needs of individuals, families, and communities across New York City.
The Bureau of Chronic Disease Prevention (BCDP) strives to reduce the burden of chronic diseases, including heart disease, obesity, and cancer, among New Yorkers. We work to address the impact of structural racism and other injustices that are the root cause of the inequitable prevalence, treatment, and outcomes of chronic diseases in communities of color and among other marginalized communities. BCDP focuses on nutrition, tobacco use, the built environment, cancer screening, and reducing hypertension incidence and impact. BCDP works with government and community partners to employ evidence-based policies, programs, communications, and research to shift environments, change systems, and promote health equity. The Bureau sits within the Center for Health Equity and Community Wellness.
The Program Associate position sits in the Healthy Eating Unit, which aims to promote healthy eating by shaping the environment and building on New Yorkers' resources, knowledge, and skills.
The Healthy Eating Unit seeks an enthusiastic and detail-oriented individual to assist with implementing the Get the Good Stuff program, including promotion, recruitment, enrollment, and evaluation. Get the Good Stuff aims to make fruits and vegetables more affordable for New Yorkers participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) by providing a dollar-for-dollar match on SNAP purchases of eligible fruits, vegetables, and beans at select independent grocery stores. For every dollar participants spend using SNAP/EBT on eligible fruits, vegetables, and beans, they get a matching dollar (up to $10.00 per day) that can be used for their next purchase of eligible produce.
