      University of Massachusetts Medical School–Baystate

       Institute for Healthcare Delivery and Population Science (IHDPS) at UMASS Medical School seeks an experienced Research Assistant to join an NIH (NHLBI)-funded research study starting in September. Exacerbations of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) lead to roughly 1.5 million Emergency Department visits and 700,000 hospitalizations annually in the United States.  Recovery is slow, prolonged by a vicious cycle of dyspnea-related deconditioning, and accompanied by high levels of acute care utilization and mortality. Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) is a structured program of exercise and self-management support that has been shown to alleviate dyspnea, increase health-related quality of life, and may prevent readmission and improve survival. Guidelines produced by professional societies in the US and Europe strongly recommend PR, both in the setting of stable COPD and after an exacerbation.

      Summary of Position

      The Part-Time Central and Western Massachusetts Campaign Coordinator will be part of an MPHA-based team leading the Transit Justice & Stable Neighborhoods campaign, a joint 5-year project with Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N) Massachusetts. The organizer will develop relationships with community-based organizations, local leaders and decision-makers in Worcester and Springfield to advance a policy platform driven by low-income residents and residents of color. This position will help to shape local and statewide campaign strategy, build the advocacy skills of local partners, and support the campaign to win concrete local and state policy victories that advance health equity and racial justice.

      The Transit Justice & Stable Neighborhoods project is unique in that it combines the expertise of a public health policy organization (MPHA) and a base-building organization (N2N). MPHA has a long history of successfully leveraging the power of community organizations and local leaders to advocate for state-level policy change, and N2N is skilled at building power and leadership among residents of color, immigrants, and people with low incomes. While the campaign will be rooted in the experiences and leadership of residents, community organizations and other local leaders will be essential to the campaign as they contribute essential relationships, resources, and skills that will enhance a resident-led campaign.

      We are seeking a candidate familiar with issues, politics, and community organizations in Worcester and Springfield. The candidate should have 2-3 years of experience working (in a volunteer or paid capacity) in community, legislative, labor, or electoral campaigns.

      • Move community-based organizations, leaders and decision-makers to understand and act to support a policy platform driven by low-income residents and residents of color; 
      • Plan and manage the logistics of small and large community meetings (virtual and in-person); 
      • Facilitate community meetings that bring together stakeholders from diverse sectors to generate solutions to deeply felt issues; 
      • Work with a team comprised of MPHA staff, N2N staff, residents and community champions to identify key tactics that educate, persuade, and pressure decision-makers to adopt policy priorities; 
      • Implement organizing activities (letter-writing, call-in days, social media campaigns, etc.) that educate and mobilize community organizations and leaders around a resident-driven campaign; 
      • Develop communications material (e.g., slides, factsheets, action alerts) that educate local partners about complex policy issues; 
      • Build the capacity of organizational leaders to engage their constituents in advocacy activities; 
      • Participate in transportation and housing related meetings facilitated by partner organizations, local coalitions and policymakers in the Worcester and Springfield areas; 
      • Track process and outcome data on partner organizations and decision-makers for Worcester and Springfield campaigns. 

      Qualifications

      We are looking for someone who is:

      • People-first – ability to build relationships and establish deep trust with folks across identities and socially assigned circumstances (e.g., race, class, religion, orientation, gender).

      • Internally motivated and persistent – ability to allocate time across tasks within a timeline; willingness to follow up and follow through in order to maintain relationships with partners. 
      • An adaptive communicator – ability to clearly articulate project goals and messages to distinct audiences, including those in varying positions of authority, from service providers to decision-makers. Ability to communicate complex issues in a way that is easy to understand. 
      • A strategic thinker and connector – proven track-record of coordinating a network of people to analyze and issues rooted in racism and other injustices, identify actions and leverage time and resources to move decision-makers. 
         
      • Minimum 2-3 years of experience working (in a volunteer or paid capacity) in community, legislative, labor, or electoral campaigns. 
      • Familiarity with issues, politics, and community organizations in Worcester and/or Springfield strongly preferred. 
      • Proficiency in multiple languages preferred, one of which must be English. 

      Location

      Currently, all MPHA staff are working remotely and are not traveling.
