Hampshire HOPE

Hampshire HOPE, a local coalition addressing opioid overdose and high risk substance use, is looking for people to participate in their Data to Action Workgroup.

Hampshire HOPE is a broad, inclusive coalition of people from all walks of life in Hampshire County: public health professionals, medical and behavioral health providers, police officers, prosecutors, people in recovery, people who use drugs, harm reduction specialists, advocates, allies and family members, elected officials, corrections workers, municipal leaders.

We take a big tent approach to the substance misuse epidemic in our country, inviting a diversity of perspectives in order to change underlying conditions that led to an overdose death crisis in our region.

These key tenets guide our work: dismantle stigma, prevent overdose, promote harm reduction, humanize people who use drugs or are addicted, support recovery, reduce addiction. We believe each of these goals work together on our overarching mission of saving lives. 

What the Data to Action Workgroup aims to accomplish:

  1. Take a deep dive to understand the data, including the meaning behind it, the stories it tells, and determining what's missing.
  2. Consider the ethics around data collection and how data is used, including discussing the potential unintended consequences of our actions.
  3. Recruit members with varied experiences to best shape our conversations.
  4. Inform the policy and practice decisions made by all sectors of our community as it relates to substance use disorder and opioid overdose.

Franklin County Community Development Corporation (FCCDC)

The Strengthening Racial Justice and Health Equity in Franklin County Project received a 5-year grant with a specific goal of addressing root causes of health inequities. This project emerged from the work begun by the Welcoming and Belonging Group of Franklin County, a collaboration of leaders from local businesses and nonprofits. This project will focus on strengthening racial justice and addressing the culture of white supremacy that is ingrained in individuals, businesses and institutions in our region.

This is a project of the Franklin County Community Development Corporation (FCCDC), which has a 40-year history of community development in Franklin County, and for the past 10 years throughout western MA. The project proposes to do this work over the next five years by working closely with business and community leaders to explore ways individuals and our organizations can dismantle institutionalized racism in the workplace. Actions include: collaboratively investing in professional development for employees and leadership teams; assisting in the development of diversity, equity, and inclusion strategic plans; creating a series of community forums focused on identifying and understanding why dismantling white dominant culture is important to our community; and creating a participatory action research project where community members can become researchers and help develop action plans that will make Franklin County a more welcoming, equitable and inclusive place for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC).

The Project Manager will possess the skills and experience to lead this new project from the start and keep the initiative moving forward. They will understand the relationship of the Social Determinants of Health and Racial Justice, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion issues.

Tufts University School of Medicine

Project Manager - Public Health and Community Medicine, School of Medicine. This is a limited term position for four years. This is a grant funded position and is not eligible for severance pay.

The Department of Public Health and Community Medicine is an academic department within the Tufts University School of Medicine located on the Health Sciences Campus in Boston. Technical and academic assets within the department provide a strong research support system for federally-funded research. Its 30 full-time faculty members hold advanced degrees in epidemiology, biostatistics, sociology, anthropology, law, medicine, nutrition, biology, engineering, health policy, economics, social policy, education, social work, and the behavioral sciences. Department research includes a focus on the following thematic areas: health equity, health communication, nutrition and infection, infectious disease epidemiology, health policy and health care delivery, environmental health, the opioid epidemic, and global health. Department faculty are methodologically strong and diverse, with expertise in biostatistics, survey research, program evaluation, qualitative methods, dietary assessment and spatial epidemiological analysis.

A major driver of the U.S opioid crisis is limited access to effective medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) that reduce overdose. A 2018 law (“Chapter 208”) made Massachusetts (MA) the first state to mandate that five county jails deliver all FDA-approved MOUDs (extended-release naltrexone [XR-NTX] buprenorphine-naloxone [BUP-NX], and methadone). Chapter 208 establishes a 4-year pilot program to expand all FDA-approved forms of MOUD at five county jails; two more county jails in MA voluntarily joined this initiative. The law stipulates that MOUD be maintained in individuals receiving it prior to detention, and initiated prior to release among sentenced inmates where appropriate. The seven jails must also facilitate continuation of the medication in the community on release. The Massachusetts Justice Community Opioid Innovation Network proposes to partner with these seven diverse jails and community treatment providers to conduct a Type 1 hybrid effectiveness- implementation study of Chapter 208. This study’s insights into Chapter 208’s implementation will inform the efficient development of future strategies to address OUDs in jail populations nationwide.

Responsibilities:
Provides advanced, specialized subject matter knowledge to develop, implement, supervise and evaluate a university Program or Research Project in collaboration with the Director or Principal Investigator(s).
Develops goals and strategies; designs data management and reporting systems; manages program/project financial, operational, and human resources.

This individual designs and delivers seminars, lectures and events and conducts research and writes reports and results.
Manages recruitment and retention of study subjects.
Oversees support and provides advice and counseling to staff.
Manages hiring, training, supervision, and evaluation of staff.
 
Qualifications:
Master’s degree in related discipline and 5-8 years of program or project management experience.
Experience supervising research staff in previous studies.
Must possess a valid driver’s license and reliable transportation and be able and willing to travel throughout the state.
Must be comfortable working in a secure, correctional environment.
Solid computer skills and proficiency: Excel, PowerPoint, and Microsoft Word.
Experience conducting qualitative in-depth interviews and focus groups.
Experience managing, coding, and analyzing qualitative data using content analysis software (e.g., Dedoose, NVivo, AtlasTi).
Experience implementing and managing complex study designs (e.g., observational studies, clinical trials) and program evaluations.
Solid skills in social determinants of health, participatory research methods, and community engagement.
Experience managing, cleaning, and analyzing quantitative data using statistical software (e.g., SAS, STATA, R, SPSS).
Ability to work successfully under pressure, understand and follow policies and procedures, and accommodate change.
Ability to take responsibility for assignments, work independently, and as part of a team.

AmeriCorps

TerraCorps is an AmeriCorps affiliated start-up environmental non-profit preparing and mobilizing emerging leaders to help communities gain access to and conserve land for people and nature. Working at the intersection of the land conservation and urban agriculture movements, our vision is to create a future where land is the foundation of health and well-being for ALL people in EVERY community.

This year’s TerraCorps program will support up to eighty-eight full-time AmeriCorps Members across three states (MA, RI, and CT), serving in one of five positions: Land Stewardship Coordinator (LSC), Regional Collaboration Coordinator (RCC), Community Engagement Coordinator (CEC), Youth Education Coordinator (YEC), or Sustainable Agriculture Coordinator (SAC).  Members will serve in full-time, 11-month terms (August 31st, 2020-July 30, 2021) in which they complete at least 1,700 hours of service with one of our partner organizations. Members receive a living allowance, education award, and additional AmeriCorps benefits.
 
Regional Collaboration Coordinator with CISA: Community Involved In Sustaining Agriculture (CISA).1 Sugarloaf Street. South Deerfield, MA 01373.
 
Regional Collaboration Coordinators (RCC) build the long-term capacity of their Service Sites by assessing community needs related to land conservation and land access and then organizing collaborative community projects to help meet these needs. They convene and coordinate municipal boards, all-volunteer local land trusts, planning agencies, academic institutions, nonprofits, government agencies, neighborhood groups, community housing associations, and local businesses to build regional networks, and organize collaborative cross-sector working groups to initiate new projects around community needs.  By educating landowners, farmers, and community groups and organizing multi-stakeholder projects that increase access to funding, RCCs empower diverse people to create healthy, vibrant communities.
 
TerraCorps members engage with their supervisors to develop and carry out three or more capacity building projects over the course of the service year. Some of these projects will involve recruiting, training, and/or managing community volunteers. CISA has proposed the following potential projects for their Regional Collaboration Coordinator:

CISA intends to help build sales at farmers’ markets, through the Healthy Incentive Program (HIP). It is our goal to bring non-traditional shoppers to the market to increase their access to local, fresh food and expand the market for market venders. CISA’s TerraCorps Member will collaborate with farmers’ market venders and managers, as well as partner organizations to create training materials that can be used to educate families about SNAP/HIP acceptance at markets.

The TerraCorps Member will focus heavily on building strong relationships with partner organizations that have direct relationships with low-income residents.  The goal of this project is to educate communities about the use of SNAP and HIP at farmers’ markets to ensure they know how they can receive the most out of the program. HIP makes markets more accessible to the broader community and currently we know that many families are not aware of how to use/access this benefit. A volunteer training program will be established with the assistance of the TerraCorps member to train volunteers that can then table at markets to answer questions related to SNAP/HIP and local agriculture. Volunteers will also be able to attend partner agency meetings to educate their staff on all the rules pertaining to HIP, where and how to use it. The member will be responsible for recruiting, promoting, and training new volunteers while working with CISA and farmers’ market managers throughout the Pioneer Valley.

Another priority for TerraCorps RCC will be to make markets more welcoming for new shoppers and non-English speakers. By expanding the potential customer base for area farmers’ markets the Member will help farms sell more to more people strengthening the markets’ viability. By creating informational tours at farmers’ markets, the Member will enable shoppers to learn ‘how’ to maneuver around the market, give an opportunity to ask questions and get comfortable with how markets operate, making it a more welcoming place.

Required AmeriCorps Qualifications: A US citizen, US national, or Lawful Permanent Resident Alien of the U.S.. At least 18 years old. A minimum of a high school diploma or GED. No more than three previous terms as an AmeriCorps member. Pass a criminal history background check, including an FBI check.

Desired Qualifications
•      Strong writing and verbal communication skills
•      Able to serve both independently and as a member of a team
•      Comfort navigating computer software programs (i.e. Microsoft Office, Airtable, Constant Contact, WordPress, Survey Monkey)
•      Training and experience pertinent to the Regional Collaboration Coordinator position and projects listed above
•      Experience training and educating community members and volunteers

Spanish proficiency preferred. Comfortable engaging with people of various backgrounds including government   agency staff, farmers, farmers’ market managers, business owners, and community members. Comfortable speaking on the telephone. For questions about CISA’s service positions, contact Devon Whitney-Deal, Devon@buylocalfood.org, 413-665-7100 x22.
