Job Description

Job Summary

This position works within the Health Assessment and Evaluation team to lead the planning, developing, and implementation of Clark County’s Child Death Review (CDR) work, defined by the National Center for Fatality Review and Prevention as a comprehensive and multidisciplinary review of child deaths designed to help communities better understand how and why children die.

 

CDR findings are used to catalyze action to prevent other deaths through informed policy and best-practice development to improve the health and safety of communities, families, and children. The process supports data-driven acknowledgement of the ways in which personal, community, or systems-level biases affect members of the community and promotes stakeholder understanding of racial inequities and health disparities to reduce preventable and premature death.
