This position is full time and exempt Location:San Fernando
As a Partners in Care Project Manager II, you will provide technical assistance, guidance, and program management to county agencies and community aging service providers offering evidence-based programs, particularly the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP), throughout California.
You will serve as an expert as you guide the aging and public health networks that are implementing evidence-based disease and disability prevention programs. Many tools and processes are already built; you will provide support to newer counties, agencies and those having difficulty with their programs, to develop action plans, systematic processes, and reporting methods. Ultimately, you are responsible for ensuring that the counties and their service providers are on track and/or exceeding goals over the next two years; building infrastructure and sustainable systems that ensure at least 3,000 seniors complete the CDSMP program.
You will report directly to the Administrator of Health Innovations, work collaboratively with two Program Associates, and share the support of the team.

While it’s helpful if you have the content knowledge of CDSMP, your expertise in program evaluation, quantitative reporting, database management, and/or health care financing will be critical to ensuring program fidelity and sustainability across the service providers and to developing long-standing programs for decades to come.
