Established in 1805, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (the NYC Health Department) is the oldest and largest health department in the country. Our mission is to protect and improve the health of all New Yorkers, in service of a vision of a city in which all New Yorkers can realize their full health potential, regardless of who they are, how old they are, where they are from, or where they live.
As a world-renowned public health agency with a history of building transformative public health programming and infrastructure, innovating in science and scholarship to advance public health knowledge, and responding to urgent public health crises — from New York City’s yellow fever outbreak in 1822, to the COVID-19 pandemic — we are a hub for public health innovation, expertise, and programs, and services. We serve as the population health strategist, and policy, and planning authority for the City of New York, while also having a vast impact on national and international public policy, including programs and services focused on food and nutrition, anti-tobacco support, chronic disease prevention, HIV/AIDS treatment, family and child health, environmental health, mental health, and racial and social justice work, among others.
Our Agency’s five strategic priorities, building off a recently-completed strategic planning process emerging from the COVID-19 emergency, are:
1) To re-envision how the Health Department prepares for and responds to health emergencies, with a focus on building a “response-ready” organization, with faster decision-making, transparent public communications, and stronger surveillance and bridges to healthcare systems 2) Address and prevent chronic and diet-related disease, including addressing rising rates of childhood obesity and the impact of diabetes, and transforming our food systems to improve nutrition and enhance access to healthy foods
3) Address the second pandemic of mental illness including: reducing overdose deaths, strengthening our youth mental health systems, and supporting people with serious mental illness
4) Reduce black maternal mortality and make New York a model city for women’s health
5) Mobilize against and combat the health impacts of climate change
Our 7,000-plus team members bring extraordinary diversity to the work of public health. True to our value of equity as a foundational element of all of our work, and a critical foundation to achieving population health impact in New York City, the NYC Health Department has been a leader in recognizing and dismantling racism’s impacts on the health of New Yorkers and beyond. In 2021, the NYC Board of Health declared racism as a public health crisis. With commitment to advance anti-racist public health practices that dismantle systems that perpetuate inequitable power, opportunity and access, the NYC Health Department continues to work in and with communities and community organizations to increase their access to health services and decrease avoidable health outcomes.
PROGRAM AND JOB DESCRIPTION:
The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH)'s Bureau of Hepatitis, HIV, and Sexually Transmitted Infections (BHHS) oversees the City's response to viral hepatitis, HIV, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Its mission is to improve the lives of New Yorkers by ending transmission, illness, stigma, and inequities related to viral hepatitis, HIV, and STIs. BHHS's work includes testing initiatives; prevention, care, and treatment programming; epidemiology and surveillance; training and technical assistance (TA); community engagement; social marketing; policy advocacy; and racial equity and social justice initiatives. The Clinical Operation and Technical Assistance (COTA) program works to measure, report on, and improve the quality of prevention and care services delivered to people with HIV (PWH) as well as those vulnerable to contracting HIV. The COTA program engages in a variety of activities including clinical and non-clinical provider trainings, assessment of clinics via site visits and survey assessments, provision of targeted TA, production of resources and presentations on findings and implications, and engagement with internal and external partners. As a part of the national plan to End the HIV epidemic (EHE), COTA's HIV Clinical TA team will be expanding immediate initiation of antiretroviral therapy (iART) and launching long-acting injectable antiretroviral therapy (LAI ART) Public Health Detailing Campaigns. These evidence-informed clinical outreach strategies have shown to effect behavior change in providers and promote adoption of practices that can improve patient health outcomes.
The LAI ART detailing campaign will involve conducting virtual visits with clinicians and social service providers across NYC to provide tailored TA supported by an LAI ART public health action kit. The action kit will consist of materials that support provider learning, LAI ART implementation, and patient-centered shared decision-making tools. In addition, the Clinical TA team will incorporate Racial Equity and Social Justice principles to ensure equitable provision of iART and LAI ART to priority populations (i.e., men who have sex with men of color, women of color, transgender women, youth [ages 13-24], and older PWH). COTA seeks one HIV Clinical Technical Assistance (TA) Program Manager to lead the planning, implementation, and project management of the iART and LAI ART Public Health Detailing Campaigns, and other clinical HIV TA efforts.
DUTIES WILL INCLUDE BUT NOT BE LIMITED TO:
Lead the development and overall design of topic-specific detailing campaigns and TA strategy, utilizing a data-informed and racial equity and social justice approach to increase awareness of LAI ART and other topics among HIV clinical providers and PWH.
Oversee a project management strategy to guide the roll out and on-going management of TA interactions (e.g., calls, site visits, webinars etc.) with clinical and non-clinical providers.
Develop and update standardized operating procedures to guide the implementation of the iART, LAI ART, and future TA.
Supervise a team of City Research Scientists, including at least one direct report.
Lead weekly team meetings to check in on all aspects of current Public Health Detailing efforts and other HIV clinical focused TA.
Support the team to develop and nurture TA skills and strategies to promote behavior change among clinical providers through various means including workshops, site visits, webinars, curriculum development, and production of virtual learning materials.
Collaborate with COTA's Planning, Monitoring, and Evaluation (PME) team to develop evaluation plans for HIV Clinical TA detailing campaigns and TA activities.
Collaborate with COTA's Training and Technical Assistance Program (T-TAP) team to contribute to the development of eLearnings on iART, LAI ART, and other HIV treatment strategies.
Contribute to annual and semi-annual reports to funders.
Partner with other BHHS Programs to understand current activities to inform the development of TA activities.
Co-facilitate trainings on public health detailing for internal and external colleagues.
Manage relationships with contracted subject matter experts supporting HIV Clinical TA activities.
Attend and contribute to Public Health Partners Connect (Salesforce) user group meetings to identify new tools to support TA relationship building.
Identify and develop opportunities for making contributions to the public health literature by submitting abstracts and mentoring staff to submit abstracts to national conferences and papers to peer review journals.
Represent and present on iART, LAI ART, and future Public Health Detailing Campaigns and TA as requested at both internal and external meetings.
