Health Manager

Job Information


The Health Manager is responsible for all activities related to CANC’s Health Program. This includes engaging a statewide network of medical and health professionals at all career levels, from student to retiree, and promoting improved air quality and a stable climate through health education and advocacy to all members. The Health Manager will educate Health Program members, colleagues, and the public on environmental health impacts and advocate primarily on state-level policy, but certain initiatives also target institutional, local, regional, and national policies.


The Health Manager nurtures and stewards a well-informed, diverse group of medical and health professionals who effectively advocate for CANC’s healthy air and climate policy priorities and coordinate educational programming with our partners. This is accomplished by:

  • Managing the Health Program membership by recruiting new members and engaging current members across the state.
  • Managing the Health Advisory Board, including the board’s quarterly meetings.
  • Analyzing, synthesizing, and disseminating new research regarding the health impacts of air pollution and climate and creating position statements for CANC’s priorities highlighting health impacts.
  • Measuring the effectiveness of organizational activities and judging the significance of changes brought about by those activities across North Carolina.
  • Working with our Policy Manager to write op-eds or letters to the editor to support advocacy activities from a health perspective.
  • Reviewing EPA air quality standards and working with the Policy Program Manager to create comments, statements, and health alerts.
  • Developing new and maintaining current partnerships with research institutions and advocacy organizations, and relationships with members of the media and policymakers.
  • Leading the planning committee and coordinating the logistics for the annual day-long NC BREATHE conference, including identifying venues, developing agenda, coordinating the speakers, arranging the caterer, organizing the poster session, managing staff support, etc.
  • Presenting at and attending events, conferences, and board meetings, including conducting the monthly air, climate, and health training with Duke Health and Atrium Health pediatric residents.
  • Drafting content for communication platforms, e.g., blog posts, social media, action alerts, and a monthly e-Bulletin.
  • Recruiting and supervising interns and volunteers.
  • Participating in fundraising efforts and administrative tasks with other staff for general organizational support and support of the Health Program.


  • Experience in developing, delivering, and evaluating educational health presentations.
  • Experience in public health, environmental project management, event planning, and policy advocacy.
  • Excellent networking, organizational, and written and verbal communication skills, and ability to present to diverse audiences, specifically racially, ethnically, and socioeconomically diverse communities.
  • High level of comfort with technology including Microsoft Office, G Suite, Asana, and Zoom.
  • Degree in health, environmental science, or related field or equivalent education and/or experience desired.

The work environment requires someone who is a self-starter, confident, responsible, reliable, enthusiastic, and goal-oriented. The individual must be flexible in a rapidly changing work environment and work well independently and as part of a team.

Must be able to endure some physical exertion, such as long periods of standing; recurring bending, crouching, stooping, stretching, reaching, or similar activities; recurring lifting of moderately heavy items such as office equipment and boxes of supplies. The work may require specific but common physical characteristics and abilities, such as lifting up to 50 pounds, above-average agility, and dexterity.
