** OPEN ONLY TO EMPLOYEES WHO ARE CURRENTLY SERVING AS PERMANENT STAFF ANALYST. YOU MUST CLEARLY STATE YOUR CIVIL SERVICE STATUS ON YOUR RESUME OR COVER LETTER. ALL OTHER CANDIDATES WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED. The newly created Center for Health Equity (CHE) will align efforts in advancing health equity across the city and ensure that we deploy resources to reduce health and mental health disparities across all neighborhoods in New York City. The CHE will work in collaboration with community-based partners, building on work the District Public Health Offices and others have pursued over the years. The Center will focus on three key areas: leveraging policy changes to better integrate primary care and public health to serve the health needs of communities; building interagency collaboration to implement a multi-sectorial approach to addressing the root causes of health disparities; and increasing access to care by making services more accessible in neighborhoods with the worst health outcomes. The ultimate goal is to reduce differences in health outcomes that can be traced to unequal economic, environmental and social conditions.
