Data Analyst

The Fund for Public Health in New York City, (FPHNYC) is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to the advancement of the health and well-being of all New Yorkers. To this end, in partnership with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), FPHNYC incubates innovative public health initiatives implemented by DOHMH to advance community health throughout the city. It facilitates partnerships, often new and unconventional, between government and the private sector to develop, test, and launch new initiatives. These collaborations speed the execution of demonstration projects, effect expansion of successful pilot programs, and support rapid implementation to meet the public health needs of individuals, families, and communities across New York City.



This position will be housed within the EpiCenter unit, in the DOHMH Division of Health Promotion of Justice-impacted Populations (HPJIP). The Bureau for Health Promotion of Justice-Impacted Populations aims to reduce the negative social and health consequences of justice system involvement through innovative policy and practice change. HPJIP promotes evidence-based best practices to address the needs of those disproportionately impacted by the criminal legal system. Planning for evaluation of the Health Justice Network (HJN), an innovative program within the Bureau is currently underway.

This position sits within a grant funded project - the New York City Health Justice Network (NYC HJN), an innovative program to improve the health and wellbeing of persons with justice involvement (PWJI) by increasing their access to, engagement in, and quality of community-based health and social services. This position is a time-limited position that runs through the end of August 2022 with a possible extension. PWJI are defined as anyone who has had direct contact with any level of the criminal legal system (e.g. incarceration, probation, parole, police contact, etc.) Primary care and community-based organizations (CBOs) with experience serving PWJI explicitly partnered to serve NYC HJN clients, employing an innovative client engagement strategy that includes: 1) employing community health workers with lived experience of the criminal legal system working as navigators between the health and social systems; and 2) implementing trauma-informed care interventions in clinical and community settings.
