(*relevant experience- coordination/oversight for public health or social/behavioral study)

Study Summary:
Inadequate and/or poor quality sleep in early childhood impairs social-emotional and cognitive function (via effects on the developing brain), and markedly increases obesity risk (via hormonal and endocrine effects). Short sleep duration, behavioral sleep problems and sleep-disordered breathing peak at 20%-50%, during the preschool years (ages 3-5). Healthy sleep habits increase sleep duration and prevent behavioral sleep problems. Awareness of sleep-disordered breathing symptoms leads to timely treatment for it. Despite ample data on sleep problems “…much less work has been done on effective strategies to promote sleep as a healthy behavior (CDC 2013)”.

The overarching goal is to empower families of preschool children with the knowledge and skills needed for healthy sleep, and to recognize a sleep problem. It builds on our work in Head Start, an early childhood education (ECE) program for disadvantaged preschool children and their families: Our Early Childhood Sleep Education Program (ECSEP™) educates Head Start teachers, children, and parents about healthy sleep in a way they can process and understand. In a randomized controlled trial, the children in the ECSEP group slept 30 minutes longer/night. As well, our UCLA Health Care Institute’s structured approach to low literacy health training in Head Start (to reduce ER visits, obesity, etc.) has reached >100,000 families.

Our study will implement a Social-Ecological web of multi-level interventions to reinforce the ECSEP, and to promote healthy sleep throughout ECE. Within Head Start, we will create new delivery platforms (print & video, family visits) that ‘amplify’ the ECSEP. Beyond Head Start, we will educate communities, and partner with stakeholders on strategies designed to embed ‘sleep health literacy’ in ECE policy. This project will: 1) Adapt sleep education material into additional multi-media formats, and; apply the Health Care Institute model to train Head Start staff to mount interventions and collect data. 2) Enroll 540 parent-child dyads from 7 Head Start agencies in New York in a stepped wedge randomized controlled trial. We will analyze trial effects on primary outcomes: a) child sleep duration, b) parent knowledge, attitudes, self-efficacy and behavior, and c) child sleep difficulties. 3) Assess the feasibility of screening and guidance for sleep problems (vs. sleep health) for a future efficacy study. Secondary outcomes are: classroom behaviors, policy change, and process data.

5.Position: Program Coordinator

Organization: The Fund for Public Health in New York, Inc.

Posting Date: August 5, 2015

The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), Primary Care Information Project (PCIP) is devoted to improving population health in underserved neighborhoods through health information technology. As cancer is the leading cause of premature mortality in NYC, PCIP’s Cancer Prevention Program’s (‘CPP’) mission is to reduce cancer’s incidence and mortality, and to promote the overall health of at-risk New Yorkers. The reduction and elimination of cancer inequalities is a core component of all CPP initiatives. Prevention is a critical CPP focus. Colorectal cancer (CRC) remains the second leading cause of cancer death and the third leading cause of premature cancer death in NYC, and yet is one of the most preventable cancers. CRC prevention is a critical CPP focus. Strong evidence supports the effectiveness of CRC screening, and a decade ago NYC launched an aggressive campaign to increase screening rates. In the past decade, NYC’s CRC screening rate increased by over 60% and racial and ethnic screening disparities have been eliminated between black, white, Asian and Hispanic New Yorkers. However, disparities persist and the screening rate increases have levelled off. Insurance status remains a significant inequality for CRC screening, with the rate for the uninsured significantly lower than those with insurance.

The CPP is piloting a new program that addresses this inequality for the uninsured and also develops primary care based quality improvement strategies to improve overall screening rates. The program provides free colonoscopy screening for uninsured New Yorkers, by linking large scale primary care practices serving underserved communities, such as Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and Community Health Centers (CHCs), with free standing Endoscopy Centers (ECs). The CHCs refer their uninsured patients to the endoscopy centers that provide free colonoscopy screening. The project leverages a charity care requirement for ambulatory surgical centers.

In collaboration with The Fund for Public Health in New York (FPHNY), a not for profit corporation serving as program partner with DOHMH to implement and advance public health initiatives, PCIP is seeking a Program Coordinator.
Reporting to the Program Manager, the Program Coordinator will be responsible for assisting in the recruitment and outreach to CHCs and ECs to solicit participation in NYC Community Cares Project (CCP). In addition to serving as a liaison to participating sites within the CCP, the Program Coordinator will coordinate monthly data collection and feedback; ensuring project outcomes are monitored and evaluated as well as participate in the implementation and development of CHC-based initiatives such as patient navigation and care coordination.

Program Coordinator responsibilities include the following:
• Assist NYC Community Cares Project (CCP) team in recruitment and outreach to CHCs and ECs to solicit participation in project, which includes introductory meetings, phone calls and/or emails to convene participating sites and establish workflows for direct referrals for colonoscopy
• Assist Cancer Team with administrative tasks such as purchase orders, MOUs and agreement management
• Coordinate meetings and phone calls with participating centers, specifically assisting with scheduling and logistics of meetings, and managing minutes and next steps
• Maintain bowel prep donations for participating centers which may include outreach to pharmaceutical companies for bowel prep voucher donations or finding alternate solutions for bowel prep at partnering primary care centers (formulary).
• Implement, track and manage patient gift cards at primary care centers
• Manage a case load of sites participating in CCP and serve as a liaison between CHC and EC staff; which includes ongoing check-ins and troubleshooting
• Manage participating centers monthly data collection and feedback, with quarterly feedback and benchmarking reports
• Assist in survey assessments to case load of participating sites
• Expertise in patient navigation and care coordination, and ability to provide technical assistance to CCP partner sites, to include:
– Patient and provider reminders for screenings
– Delivery of patient education
– Addressing and reducing health system barriers to colorectal cancer screenings
• Provide support to the Cancer Program team on a variety of projects and administrative tasks as needed

Preferred Skills:
• Bachelor’s Degree in health-related field
