  • Ensure effective integration and standardization of clinical activities between sites and integration of medical programs with co-located dental and mental health services.  
  • Design and implement strategic and community facing health equity work involving community partnerships and systemic advocacy.  
  • Ensure that clinic structures and processes support and maintain the consistent and honest inclusion of community input on clinical and community health efforts, with a focus on populations who experience the greatest disadvantages for health and well-being  
  • Collaborate and support the OBCC Measurement and Innovation Hub’s efforts on community-partnered measurement and evaluation to advance OBCC’s mission and improvement, as well as support congruent research and rigorous data collection to promote population health measurement and improvement. Work with the Hub community and measurement leads to identify and engage with appropriate partners and projects for clinic, community, and policy level measurement and research efforts.
