About the Prevention Institute
The Prevention Institute, a dynamic organization, moves beyond approaches that target individuals, one person at a time, to create systematic, comprehensive strategies that change the conditions that impact community health. Determined to improve health and safety for everyone, PI builds prevention and equity into key policies and actions to transform the places where people live, work, play, and learn. PI’s work is characterized by an interdisciplinary approach and a strong commitment to community participation and promotion of equitable health outcomes among all social and economic groups.
Since its founding in 1997, PI has forged a strong track record in developing tools, building momentum for primary prevention, and in moving policy- and decision-makers toward an ever greater focus on community well-being and prevention. Our topical work includes advancing community prevention through health reform; promoting health equity; fostering healthy environments, such as those that support healthy eating and active living; and preventing injury — including violence — and trauma. The ideal candidate will be able to remain flexible and work across topical and functional teams and operational responsibilities as needed.
