Legal Council for Health Justice, Healthy Futures VISTA
 
 
 
Legal Council for Health Justice has a long and successful history of developing effective community partnerships and innovative delivery models in hospitals and health systems, educational settings, homeless shelters, and community-based organizations in order to improve access to and engagement with health care and essential supports among vulnerable clients who would otherwise never obtain this help. The Healthy Futures VISTA helps build capacity of the organization to expand our services to new populations, as well as to strengthen outreach and education efforts among consumers, policymakers, and the care provider network at major hospitals/health systems across Cook County. A key role of the VISTA will be to draft, edit, curate, and manage content across several programs and training areas. Interest in public health, social determinants of health, trauma-informed care, and social justice desired. The position is a great option for students taking a gap year before medical school or considering a future career in healthcare. Fluency in Spanish is a plus.
