Southeast Region Program Manager
The Southeast Region Program Manager oversees the Ryan White Part C program, a federally funded grant that supports people living with HIV in the Southern Ohio tri-state region (Ohio/Kentucky/West Virginia), and the Early Intervention Services project, funded by Ohio Department of Health to increase access to biomedical prevention services among priority populations.

All administrative efforts support the overarching goal of helping clients achieve HIV viral load suppression and preventing the transmission of HIV. The selected candidate will embrace diversity, offer an affirming environment to LGBTQ individuals and will use a harm reduction approach when developing services to support people who struggle with addictions.
