The Position
Health Program Managers provide administrative direction for programs related to maternal, child and family health, nutrition, disease control, or other health programs.
This is a Health Program Manager III position located in Carson City, and is based within the Nutrition Unit, within the Bureau of Child, Family and Community Wellness. This position provides administrative direction and direct supervision to the programs within the Nutrition Unit and the Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Section. The mission of the Nutrition Unit is to promote nutrition services for low-income individuals and families and nutrition education for all Nevadans. The Unit works across Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) agencies and collaborates with other State entities such as the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Education. The position is the State leader on nutrition guidelines and related evidence-based programming. This position will have a broad scope of responsibility and complexity and will report directly to the Bureau Chief of Child, Family and Community Wellness. This position receives limited supervision and direction and is expected to oversee the complex programmatic, fiscal, and personnel issues within the Unit independently with minor oversight. The position may represent the Unit during Interim Finance Committee, Board of Examiners, Legislative Session, and to the public and the media. As noted in the classification standards for a Health Program Manager, under general direction, incumbents perform the full range of duties described in the series concept and manage a staff which includes both supervisory and professional staff engaged in the provision of health-related services. Health Program Manager III's are the highest-level managers of a statewide or regional health program and are responsible for long range, broad-based planning and policy development, and controlling and administering multiple complex funding sources and budgets.
