Position Title: Summer Connect for Health Desk Advocate Summary: Connect for Health (formerly known as Health Leads) is an organization that envisions a different kind of health care system: one that addresses basic resource needs, such as food, heat, and clothing, among others, as a standard part of quality care. Connect for Health understands that a lack of basic resources is often at the root cause of poor health. It acknowledges that medicine alone cannot treat the non-medical factors that impact patients’ health, and thus strives to integrate basic resources into healthcare delivery. By providing high-impact services to low-income families, Connect for Health is committed to the fight for health equity. This is a paid (minimum wage) internship. Desk Advocates Responsibilities include: • Working with clients who phone or walk up to the desk; • Enrolling patients who walk up to the desk and providing them with in-person assistance; • Entering provider referrals and screens into databases, calling patients referred or screened, and keeping up with a caseload • Conducting weekly phone follow-up with designated clients, while on shift at the desk. • Coordinate community resource connections. • Attend weekly advocate development meeting.
