The ideal candidate will have a bachelor’s degree with 2-4 years of experience and should demonstrate an understanding of community health and an eagerness to participate hands-on in the engagement and retention of patients in care. The individual must be a great communicator who can work with people from diverse backgrounds including medical and administrative staff and patients. Because the population of individuals co-infected with HIV/Hepatitis C includes middle-aged and older adults many of whom engaged in high-risk activities, the candidate must be able to work without judgment for people’s choices or life experiences. In addition, the candidate must be a team player, have excellent written and oral communication skills, show flexibility and have a commitment to producing high quality work. Comfort and ability to travel around NYC by all forms of public transportation and to navigate low income neighborhoods is required. Spanish language skills are a plus.
