Posted 1 year ago at 12:46 am

Dear Colleagues:  Please help us find excellent candidates for these two great positions that will lead multi-sector collective impact efforts to reduce disparities in preterm births in San Francisco. Collective impact efforts will promote the social and healthcare determinants of preconception, reproductive, and prenatal health.

Open:  February 2nd through March 6th, 2017

Public Health Foundation Enterprises, Inc. (PHFE) invites applications for the positions of one Program Manager and one Program Associate for an initiative led by UCSF and SFDPH, Collective Impact to Prevent Preterm Births in San Francisco.

In partnership with the California Preterm Birth Initiative (PTBi-CA) at UC San Francisco (UCSF), the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) is initiating a multi-year collective impact program to reduce disparities in preterm birth incidence in San Francisco.  Prematurity is a leading cause of infant mortality and childhood disability.  Addressing the social, economic, and racial disparities of reproductive health and preterm birth requires engaging institutions across sectors to partner with communities disproportionately affected by preterm birth. Collective Impact requires a shared system of measuring impact of policies and programs that promote health and well-being of women, screen for preterm birth risk factors, and ensure access to quality healthcare across the reproductive life course. The grant-funded positions include:
• Program Manager (PM) will lead the backbone organization to support this multi-sector initiative. [Salary: $88,000 – 97,000 /yr]  Link: PM:

• Program Associate (PA) will support the Program Manager and Leadership Team, and coordinate administrative and project activities of this multi-sector initiative.  [Salary: $58,000 – 68,000 /yr] Link: PA:

This is a grant-funded and benefitted position.  Employee is provided by PHFE.

Candidates should have strong experience and interest in:
• Preconception, reproductive, and pregnancy health.
• Communities disparately affected by birth outcomes, particularly African American communities, Medi-Cal patient populations, low-income immigrants, etc.

Other notes:
The positions will be primarily based and working closely with Maternal Child & Adolescent Health staff at the San Francisco Department of Public Health.   Occasional work-related activities will be located at UC San Francisco with UCSF faculty and staff at the Mission Bay campus.

Generously funded by Marc and Lynne Benioff, PTBi-CA focuses on those at highest risk of preterm birth — women of color and lower income — within three communities: San Francisco, Oakland, and Fresno.  The generous funding from the Benioffs for the two Collective Impact positions in San Francisco have been matched by federal and state grants through California Department of Public Health and the San Francisco Department of Public Health.

The Collective Impact Forum’s online community provides a peer network, discussion spaces, resources, and news for collective impact practitioners.
