Health Educator I
SEARHC was established in 1975 under the provisions of the Indian Self-Determination Act as a non-profit health consortium which serves the health interests of the residents of Southeast Alaska. The intent of this legislation was to have Indian Health Service programs and facilities turned over to tribal management. Our contracting with IHS began in 1976 when we took over management of the Community Health Aides Program. In 1982, we took over operation of the IHS Juneau clinic, now the Ethel Lund Medical Center, and took over operation of Sitka’s Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital in 1986. We are one of the oldest and largest Native-run health organizations in the nation.
The Health Educator I is a member of the SEARHC Health Promotion team and will assist in planning and implementing evidence based and promising health education strategies, interventions and programs as well as serve as a health education resource person. Specifically this position addresses chronic disease risk factors in group settings and one-on-one lifestyle coaching in partnership with SEARHC providers. These services are provided to individuals, small groups, and communities in the SEARHC region and may include presentations to larger groups of community members and/or Tribal leaders.
At SEARHC, we see our employees as our strongest assets. It is our priority to further their development and our organization by aiding in their professional advancement. Working at SEARHC is more than a job, it’s a fulfilling career.
We offer generous benefits, including retirement, paid time off, paid parental leave, health, dental, and vision benefits, life insurance and long and short-term disability, and more.
