    Many people within the underserved communities, while not currently diagnosed with breast or ovarian cancer, have few appropriate, relevant, and compelling resources to obtain information about this disease and to become educated and empowered.

    SHARE‘s Outreach Manager will oversee an initiative in which SHARE Ambassadors provide awareness & education, informed peer support, empowerment, and advocacy to bring about better health care and an improved quality of life for the Latina, African-American and other underserved communities of New York City. The Outreach Manager will use existing models and will develop innovative methods of identifying and reaching out to community leaders.

    SHARE seeks a person familiar with the underserved communities in New York City and experience in doing community outreach, public speaking, and networking to help disseminate this information throughout the communities. The Manager will supervise the Ambassadors, generate new avenues to reach people who can be helped by this program, maintain a database of relevant information, provide reports, visit community sites to make presentations, and recruit new Ambassadors from Latina, African-American, and other underserved communities. The Outreach Manager will be responsible for assisting SHARE in reaching more people in more communities by expanding and deepening this grassroots initiative.
