Health Equity Circle is partnering with the WSU Elson S Floyd College of Medicine to develop two organizer positions, see below for details
Health Equity Lead Clinic Organizer (Everett)
The Health Equity Lead Clinic Organizer will provide support to local clinics through ongoing development of clinic organizing programs. The lead organizer supports the clinic-based community organizing initiative that seeks to identify common health and social issues impacting patients, develop patient and staff leaders capable of leading change, and create patient-clinic-community collaborations (or communities of solution) to address patient-identified issues. Rather than focusing solely on the individual patient as the unit of intervention, the program extends towards the community as the unit of change, diagnosing community-wide barriers/issues (e.g., racism, sexism, trans-/homo-phobia, housing instability, food insecurity) rather than illness alone, and addressing them with community-powered solutions and leadership development for civic engagement.
Health Equity Circle Organizer (Spokane)
The Health Equity Organizer will provide support to student led health equity circle chapters in Spokane and oversees the regional network of Health Equity Circle student chapters. The Health Equity organizer position is an academic-community collaboration between the WSU Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine and the Health Equity Circle.
Key responsibilities will include: creating systems, developing and delivering curriculum involving the impacts of social determinants of health, relational leadership, and community organizing on health equity to build student capacity for upstream change; establishing a strong network of engaged interprofessional student leaders and community partners.
