E-mail Print PDF

The Santa Clara County Public Health Department is working with the City of Sunnyvale on some tobacco prevention policies and Sunnyvale would like to hire a consultant part time to complete work related to the development of the policy. This could include, conducting research on tobacco policies, health data, conducting community and stakeholder outreach, preparing draft reports and memos to City Council, and assisting in implementation efforts. The pay is pretty nice as well, and would provide great public health policy experience from within a government agency.
