The community champion also rallies fellow community members to engage in support and training that will build their confidence and skills to challenge systems that create poor health outcomes within their own communities.

This is a temporary, contractual, project-based role. Applicant must be a current resident of the Mon Valley (see https://www.hscc-mvpc.org/hscc/communities/ for a full list of communities) and have had residency for the past three years or more.
