POSITION SUMMARY

The Public Health Institute (PHI) is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting health, well-being, and quality of life for people throughout California, across the nation, and around the world.

CWN’s vision is for a healthy nation and world where wellness is achievable for all individuals and communities, and its mission is to build capacity and leadership in communities and institutions to make optimal health accessible for all. CWN’s work focuses on increasing access to healthy affordable foods, developing resilient local/regional foodsheds, decreasing consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages, and increasing safe places to be physically active using a health equity framework. CWN’s approach is participatory using community engagement principles and a human-centered design framework to meet the needs of communities.

Working with the Director of the CWN and the senior leadership team, this position is responsible for identifying and analyzing policy issues related to nutrition and health at the local, state, federal, and international levels using a health equity framework. Policy issues include those that are statutory, as well as regulatory/administrative, and institutional or organizational. While relevant policy issues are primarily focused on local, state, and national issues, some will be international. This may include understanding the policy processes in other countries, specifically in low- and middle-income (LMIC) countries, and/or identifying successful policies in other countries that have reduced food insecurity and/or increased equitable practices that could be replicable in other countries contexts.

The successful candidate for this position should have a strong commitment to advancing health equity and possess an understanding of the evolving nutrition, agriculture, and health policy landscape both in and out of California, the key federal legislation and policy-making process related to nutrition, food and agriculture, familiarity with public health policy including COVID related policies, practices, and special funding, and health policies that are most likely to reduce health inequities.
