Position Focus:

Housed within the SEICHE Center for Health and Justice at Yale is the administrative leaders of the Transitions clinic network programs in Connecticut. The Transitions Clinic Network (TCN) is a national network of over 50 medical homes for individuals with chronic health conditions recently released from incarceration. Each clinic that adopts the TCN program employs a community health worker (CHW) with a history of incarceration as part of the clinical team. We are looking to hire a Research Assistant 1, HSS to assist in efforts to expand the state's network of programs across Connecticut to areas such as New London, Waterbury, Stamford and the valley. This expansion of our work is particularly needed now given the COVID-19 pandemic, which has only exacerbated already existing inequalities and placed additional barriers for those impacted by incarceration to access health care.

The individual in this position will work with local stakeholders across the state to identify health systems interested in developing a Transitions Clinic Network program. They will also work alongside the health systems to identify grant opportunities and funding mechanisms that are necessary to support local Transitions Clinic programs. This position will also entail building and maintaining strong relationships with local reentry centers through activities such as attending roundtables hosted by the CT Reentry Collaborative as well as with social services organizations, government stakeholders and especially building upon the recent collaboration led by the Connecticut Coalition for Ending Homelessness forged during COVID-19. This individual would also inform the training and professional development of CHWs in Connecticut, as well as connecting them to the larger national TCN network. Complementing this work, this position will also focus on strengthening our existing clinics in New Haven, Hartford, and Bridgeport by working with them to identify opportunities for growth and tackling barriers to success. Lastly, this individual may be involved in working with local and state policy-makers to advocate for policies that directly impact our work and the population we serve, such as Medicaid financing for CHWs.

Preferred Education, Experience and Skills:

Knowledge and experience in correctional health care and key stakeholders on local and national level is highly preferred.
