The Manager, Communications/Health Equity, plays a vital role in expanding the organization’s capacity to establish, assist and implement communications activities under NASTAD’s Center for Engaging Black MSM Across the Care Continuum (CEBACC). The overarching goal of the national technical assistance resource center is to identify, compile, and disseminate best practices and effective models for HIV clinical care and treatment across the HIV care continuum to increase the capacity, quality, and effectiveness of healthcare providers (both HIV care and other healthcare providers) to screen, diagnose, link, and retain Black men who have sex with men (BMSM) in HIV clinical care. The Manager will work in concert with the Senior Manager, Communications and the CEBACC team to implement all communications activities in the project work plan, including working with a cadre of federal/national partners and a team of behavioral and clinical researchers, clinicians and other service providers, health departments, community-based organizations, and community stakeholders.
The Manager will support CEBACC communications activities with special attention to developing strategies that push the boundaries of innovative approaches to online communications, including supporting the development of an appealing centralized web-based clearinghouse of best practices for BMSM across the HIV Care Continuum and an email and social media awareness campaign. The Manager will also have the opportunity to explore new digital technologies to disseminate best practices to core audiences (e.g., BMSM, providers, federal partners, health departments, community-based organizations, etc.). These include Pinterest, Storify, Vine, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, infographics, videos, and miscellaneous mobile applications.
The Manager will be responsible for representing NASTAD at various consultations, meetings and conferences as well as representing the Health Equity team in NASTAD cross program collaborations. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter with relevant communications and social marketing skills.
