Job Opening: Community Engagement Coordinator

 

Community Engagement Coordinator
The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) has embarked on a 3-year pilot program with the NIH All of Us Research Program to stimulate and facilitate community engagement and participant support through the NNLM, including developing community based participatory programming for geographic areas. This includes engaging participants and other interested parties in management of their personal health data, leveraging the public library as a convener for local All of Us partners and stakeholders, and assessing the impact of libraries on participant retention in the All of Us program. Activities will be tailored to the community’s needs. They include culturally and linguistically appropriate programming, training community members and organizations to reach out to their populations, creation of tools and resources for persons of disabilities, inclusion of training and resources in bookmobiles, and partnerships with minority-serving institutions and community based organizations for outreach to underserved populations. The Community Engagement Coordinator will be responsible for the oversight and implementation of the All of Us Community Engagement activities in the MidContinental Region of the NNLM. Applications are still being accepted until the position is filled. Full Posting
Questions about this position should be directed to Claire Hamasu, Associate Director: chamasu@RML4.utah.edu  (801)587-3412.
