As one of the nation’s leading public health advocacy organizations, the Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) is dedicated to saving lives by protecting the health of every community and working to make disease prevention a national priority. Since its founding in 2001, TFAH has been at the forefront of developing and advancing policies to improve the public health system. TFAH’s strategic agenda focuses on ensuring and strengthening sufficient and sustained resources for an improved core public health system; improving the integration of the public health and health care systems to achieve better results in reducing health problems and delivering value-based results; and building partnerships and collaboration across sectors to promote effective approaches to address the social determinants of health. The organization is deeply committed to working to close the health gaps across racial, ethnic, geographic, and economic disparities.
TFAH has built an exceptional reputation by defining a vision for a new era of public health – bringing together incisive, science-driven analyses with innovative, yet pragmatic ideas for policy change. The organization regularly issues a hallmark set of high-visibility issue reports that have redefined and advanced public health issues; convenes top experts and partners with diverse views to rethink and advance priority areas; builds partnerships and coalitions to achieve mutually-beneficial goals; and serves as a strong, credible, non-partisan “go to” thought leader on public health issues for policymakers, media, partners, and the public.
At a pivotal time for the organization with a new President and CEO, TFAH now seeks a new Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer to help create and chart a new strategic path that builds on the organization’s legacy and strengths while also adapting to the changing healthcare landscape. The new EVP & COO will work closely with the CEO, engaging new funding partners and a dynamic and expanded board, to maximize its capacity to improve and advance an effective public health system and address the intersectionality of complex issues that impact public health. The new EVP & COO will serve in a vital and integral leadership role, helping to shape new strategic initiatives, managing TFAH’s core business functions and internal operations, providing leadership and support to TFAH’s staff, and serving as an external face to advance TFAH’s brand recognition among its many stakeholders.
