Full-time Associate Position at The diaTribe Foundation in San Francisco

San Francisco, California, United States


The diaTribe Foundation is a 501(c)3 certified nonprofit organization with a mission to improve the lives of people living with diabetes and prediabetes, and to advocate for action. The diaTribe Foundation is committed to helping people with diabetes live happier, healthier, and more hopeful lives through its many programs. These include diaTribe, a free online patient resource that reaches nearly two million annually, as well as numerous advocacy initiatives that seek to improve diabetes literacy in the media and bring the patient perspective to the FDA and other policy makers. The Foundation also hosts events throughout the year to convene the world’s brightest minds and develop innovative solutions to the type 2 diabetes epidemic – notably, the d-Series: Executive Innovation Lab on Diabetes and Obesity. Our rapidly-growing organization is located in the vibrant Lower Haight neighborhood of San Francisco and led by founder Kelly Close (Amherst ’90, Harvard Business School ’95).

The Full-Time Associate position at The diaTribe Foundation is ideal for someone with a significant science or pre-medical background who has additional interests in public health, health policy, the nonprofit sector, and/or business. Strong writing, communication, and project management skills are essential.

This is designed as a two-year position, although there are occasional exceptions. Associates are involved in nearly every aspect of the Foundation and assume significant responsibility in our established and emerging education, advocacy, and outreach programming. On leaving the organization, alumni often pursue medical, public health, or business graduate degrees; others follow careers in industry, marketing, education, and policy. Some of our alumni cohort (past Associates from Close Concerns, dQ&A, & The diaTribe Foundation) are currently students, residents, or post-docs at Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Mount Sinai, Penn, Stanford, and UCSF.

The Associate position entails a wide range of responsibilities and opportunities:
