Health Literacy Coordinator – Job Description
For the past several years, South Shore Community Partners in Prevention (“SSCPP”) has identified Health Literacy as a goal of the CHNA in order to improve health outcomes for area residents, especially members of special and vulnerable populations. These populations include elderly, disabled, low-income, and people for whom English is not a primary language. The South Shore Health Literacy Initiative (“The Initiative”) will benefit these populations, but will have the effect of enhancing the ability of all residents of our catchment area to advocate for their own health care and to work with providers to ensure that the communications surrounding all health care is delivered and received in the most effective manner possible.

Familiarity with the SSCPP region will be considered as a plus. Five + years of experience preferred (but not required). Minimum Associate’s Degree required (Bachelor’s/Public Health preferred).
