Some very exciting news that I am most definitely happy to be sharing with you all. For just about 4 years Pulse + Signal has been about technology, new media and new ideas happening in and around public & community health. Over those years I have put quite a bit of thought into what really makes a difference to improve the health of our communities. Sure, gadgets and new communication tools can be helpful and buzzworthy but in the end there is only one factor that will make the difference.
The people that are motivated by the eradication of a crippling disease affecting a community. The people that see an opportunity for a fresh approach to age-old problems. The ones who wake up inspired to make a difference. The individuals that share my passion for innovation in this field who helped me get this project off the ground (thank you Bridgette and Margaret!).
On the front page of Pulse + Signal you will notice a new tab at the top for the Job section. In addition, there is a widget on the right side of the blog for you to see the latest postings. We’ve also set up a Twitter account for the job board – you can expect tweets to center around jobs, internships and other growth opportunities for the next generation of public health change.
The field of public health is undergoing a tremendous change. With an increase in the public’s attention to pressing issues such as childhood and adult obesity, access to proper healthcare, threat of widespread epidemics and regular reports on the plight of communities of color – a new crop of talent is sorely needed. The Pulse + Signal job board aims to help fill this need for next generation problem solvers. With a focus on technology, new media/journalism and other innovative areas, the Pulse + Signal job board will connect individuals wanting to improve the health of the masses with the organizations that have the same mission.
