Health Advocacy Associate, PCCY

Posted by Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY) on May 25, 2021

This position is part-time (20-30 hours/week), for one year, June 2021-May 2022, with the possibility of renewal.

The Health Advocacy Associate is an experienced, persistent, can-do champion for children. This fast-paced position will help supplement PCCY’s current efforts to substantially grow two statewide health initiatives for which the Health Advocacy Associate will apply their expertise in building coalitions, engaging community stakeholders, developing communication strategies, interacting with and educating policymakers, and conducting research and persuasive writing. The first initiative is focused on childhood lead poisoning prevention – the Lead-Free Promise Project – primarily aimed at securing state funds to remove lead hazards from children’s homes and increase the number of children screened for lead. This work is part of a larger initiative, the PA Prenatal to Age Three Collaborative, for which PCCY leads the lead poisoning component. The second initiative is a PCCY-led effort to change state law to permit children who are undocumented individuals to qualify for public health insurance (CHIP or Medicaid). This Dream Care initiative kicked off in 2015 and we have recruited 100 organizations to participate in the Dream Care Coalition.
