Our Bodies Ourselves bids farewell to Publications Program Assistant Elana Hayasaka, who will be reporting for Partners in Health, a Boston-based nonprofit organization that helps create health care systems for impoverished communities in developing countries (check out this great Chicago Tribune article about a PIH doctor’s work in Haiti).
Elana has done some amazing work for OBOS, including setting up all our social networking worlds, and her shoes will be hard to fill. For the coming year, the main project will be publicizing the new book, “Our Bodies, Ourselves: Pregnancy and Birth” (forthcoming in March 2008) by planning and coordinating a national campaign of events and media appearances.
If you or someone you know is interested, act fast! Email a cover letter and resume with the subject line “Communications and Marketing Associate Search” to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is July 10, 2007.
