Supporting evidence for CDC's list of underlying medical conditions that put individuals at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

November is National Diabetes Month and Harlem-based, Preventive Lifestyle Assistance Network (PLAN) is collaborating with California-based nonprofit, The Eight, to launch the "Check Your Risk" Diabetes Awareness Challenge (CYR). Our goal is to have 1,000,000 Americans determine their risk for developing type 2 diabetes using a one-minute survey.

We are seeking an experienced Social Media Manager to volunteer her/his time in support of our efforts.

This role is primarily responsible for managing the Check Your Risk (CYR) social channels and digital platforms to grow and retain awareness and participation. Examples of projects and tactics range from managing/updating the social media brand handles, advocacy tools/platforms, and creating social media content and/or campaigns.

Projects will need to have defined metrics and campaigns will be measured against those metrics-as analytics will also be used to influence future projects.

As a manager, this candidate may oversee media or communications to other volunteers to ensure consistent organizational messaging that aligns with the organization's strategic priorities.

This role will report to the executive director of CYR. The ideal volunteer will have excellent writing, social media, and analytics skills, *and also* a passion for diabetes prevention and awareness.

Mission Statement

"Wellness--helping people improve their quality of life through the implementation of the 8 Dimensions of being-well; (Emotional, Environmental, Financial, Intellectual, Occupational, Physical, Social and Spiritual.) Our objectives are being met through the innovative and strategic placement of "Pop-Up" service clinics throughout the Inland Empire, by providing onsite access help to create a platform for Youth, Women and People with "diverse-abilities" and introduce whole-wellness options.

Description

THE EIGHT believes in a world in which ALL people are treated with respect and dignity, as well as valued and rewarded fairly for their skills, talents and labor. We also believe in the extraordinary power of the arts and technology as a unifying language of communication and a vehicle of integration for organic learning and creative entrepreneurship.

We partner with community stakeholders and virtual wellness enthusiasts in order to connect Life changing Opportunities and People in Need.

THE EIGHT logo reflects the 8 dimensions of Wellness as a wheel. The wellness wheel shows how the dimensions work together. Like a bike wheel, if all of the spokes or dimensions are functioning at optimal levels, the wheel rolls along smoothly. If however, one of the spokes or dimensions becomes weak or if the tire loses air, the wheel will run off course.

THE EIGHT programs/aspects and activities are part of the whole--they are integrated, creative efforts that put forth a cohesive, community effort that not only educate and fights poverty but obesity and disease as well. THE EIGHT is a "Wellness Hub"--it is multi-dimensional and holistic, encompassing occupational, intellectual, social, financial, physical, emotional, the environment and spiritual well-being.
