Community healthcare is highly rewarding and very attractive for the right medical professionals. Come join a dynamic care team at LifeLong Medical Care. We are looking for a Community Health Worker - HIV Access Team to work part time, 20 hours/week, at our site in East Oakland. This is a benefit eligible position. The HIV Access Team is an innovative program to support and empower identified high risk-high needs patients to improve their health outcomes. The multidisciplinary team (RN, MD, MSWs, LCSWs and CHW) works together to support patients and address social determinants that impact health. Activities include outreach and engagement, development of care plans, scheduling appointments and tracking patients. There may be linking the patient to resources (food, housing, transport, financial) as well as linking the patient with care within the clinic.

This relationship will enable the CHW to serve as a liaison between health and social services and the clinic. Much of this work will take place in the clinic but home visits may also be needed.
