The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is seeking an Outreach and Marketing Manager for an exciting new program called the Bloomberg American Health Initiative. The Initiative was established through a $300 million gift to the School in September 2016 from the Bloomberg Philanthropies. It sets the School and its partners on a path to transform our national approach to modern public health challenges.
The Outreach and Marketing Manager is responsible for developing, implementing and managing a plan to promote key components of this recently launched program. Oversee day-to-day and long term outreach and marketing to target and recruit students and collaborating organizations. Successful management of high-level internal and external stakeholder relationships will be critical. This is a new position and requires significant 'start-up' activities.

A core component of the Initiative is a 'public health triangle' that brings together students, the School and public and private organizations on the front lines of public health or working in areas critical to but not traditionally associated with public health outcomes. This program will scale up over five years and provides for long-term, permanent funding for many of the key components.
