About The Team: The Community Health Improvement team partners with Iowa and South Dakota community leaders and citizens to strategically identify and implement well-being improvement programming and interventions that help move residents toward better health and well-being. The team works with communities and organizations to identify built environment, policy and behavioral economic based interventions that can be implemented to make healthier choices easier, resulting in a long-term impact on the entire community.
About The Role: You’ll manage the successful execution of community-wide well-being improvement programs for your assigned specialty and across multiple communities, serving as a resource and advocate for improving the well-being of these communities. You’ll assist communities to identify an overall vision for their community and help them identify built environment and policy opportunities that will transform the health of their citizens. Then you will assist and consult to aid the implementation of identified opportunities. Additionally, you’ll leverage organizations and volunteers from the community to ensure local initiatives (consisting of multiple programs/projects) are being executed successfully as measured by engagement of citizens and organizations, project process and outcome measures, and other locally-identified metrics.
Ideal candidates are resourceful, thoughtful in approach, and strategic thinkers—connectors of ideas, people, and resources. They’re also skilled group facilitators and can navigate diverse perspectives in a room while keeping progress moving forward.
