The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) is seeking an experienced, highly motivated, and strategic public health professional to oversee the planning, development, and implementation of health equity initiatives and best practices, with the goal of imbedding strategies and considerations into everyday operations. Reporting directly to the Assistant Commissioner/Director of the Office of Population Health, the Director will lead staff in the Office of Health Equity and across the Department in understanding, promoting, and integrating health equity policies and strategies into all facets of program development and operation to address structural inequities in the social determinants of health leading to health disparities experienced by individuals and communities across the state.
