Position Announcement - Director - Extension Center for Health Outreach - Clemson


The College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences at Clemson University invites applications for the position of Professor and inaugural Director of Extension Center for Health Outreach (ECHO).

Clemson University’s Extension Center for Health Outreach (ECHO) is the centralized home of health innovation through extension. It strengthens the partnerships between Clemson faculty across the university, Extension staff, and community stakeholders to collaboratively address significant public health problems through research, education, and service. ECHO capitalizes on the success of the Extension Rural Health and Nutrition Team and academic partners from the College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Life Sciences, and the College of Behavioral, Social, and Health Sciences.

ECHO is home for the Extension Rural Health and Nutrition Team. The SC legislature recognizes the potential impact of a statewide rural health Extension program and provides recurring funds that support 2 faculty positions and 20 Extension agent positions located throughout the state focused on improving health in South Carolina and program operations. In addition to these state funds, the Rural Health and Nutrition Team currently receives over $1.2 million dollars annually in grant and cooperative agreement funds to operate research and education programs. ECHO will build on the team’s current success to expand funding for multi-disciplinary research addressing chronic disease prevention and management, improving healthy food access, increasing accessibility to safe places for physical activity, and women and children’s health.
