Job Summary

The successful, bilingual (Spanish/English) candidate will join the research team of Drs. Katherine (Kate) Yun, Aditi Vasan, and Chen Kenyon, and Mr. Dean Karavite at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Our team comprises health services and informatics researchers focused on health equity. Dr. Yun is a pediatrician who studies access to care for immigrant families. Her work requires fluency in languages in addition to English (e.g., Spanish). Drs. Vasan and Kenyon are pediatricians who study social determinants of health and asthma care for children. Mr. Karavite is an informatics researcher who collaborates with clinical teams to improve healthcare technology and processes for children.


Under moderate supervision, this bilingual (English/Spanish) team member will coordinate all clinical research activities within the scope of the Family Bridge Program protocols. The Family Bridge Program is a brief, hospital-based, patient navigator intervention to improve access and quality of care for uninsured or Medicaid-enrolled children, including children in families who speak Spanish, Vietnamese, or Somali.  


In collaboration with a multilingual team at Seattle Children’s Hospital (PI: K. Casey Lion), the FB team in Philadelphia will adapt the intervention, deliver the intervention at CHOP, and support the program evaluation. The bilingual (English/Spanish) CRC will recruit participants, conduct interviews with clinical staff and community stakeholders, and analyze interview and related data during the adaptation phase of this project. Subsequently, the bilingual CRC will recruit participants, complete baseline interviews, and deliver the intervention in Spanish, Vietnamese (with interpreting), Somali (with interpreting), and English. Work will be guided by a bicoastal, bilingual community/parent advisory group, as well as input from hospital-based stakeholders.


The ideal bilingual (English/Spanish) applicant will have excellent interpersonal and organizational skills, a strong interest both in research and in working directly with diverse families, experience writing and editing research-related documents in Spanish, and a deep understanding of challenges navigating access to pediatric care and social services for children in immigrant, uninsured, and/or publicly insured families.
