Deputy Director in District Public Health Office, Center for Health Equity
The Fund for Public Health in New York, Inc. (FPHNY) 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), FPHNY implements
programs to address pressing public health needs, fosters private sector support to enhance health and
health care, and helps educate the public regarding the protection of individual, family and community
health.
The Fund for Public Health in New York seeks three (3) DPHO PICH Partnership Coordinators,
funded through the Partnership to Improve Community Health (PICH) grant from the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC). This grant supports an integrated set of complementary evidence-based
activities to bring about environment, program, and infrastructure changes to improve health outcomes by
preventing the leading causes of death and disability across the life span for all New Yorkers, particularly
those who experience disparities in health. The risk factors being addressed in this grant include
addressing poor nutrition and physical inactivity as well as reducing tobacco use and exposure to
secondhand smoke.
These three (3) positions will be housed within the newly created Center for Health Equity at the NYC
Health Department. One position will be in each DPHO: South Bronx, North and Central Brooklyn, and
East and Central Harlem. The Center is charged with working to combat the longstanding health
disparities seen in NYC’s poorest communities that bear a disproportionate burden of disease and
premature death. The Center expands access to care and addresses unequal economic, environmental and
social conditions that drive poor health by engaging with community-based organizations, institutions and
residents to ensure these perspectives are included in strategic plans, policies and implementation of
health initiatives.

Federal funding and successful annual reapplication for funding.
