The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Office of Public Policy seeks a dynamic and effective professional to help lead policy research, analysis, and development in support of the organization’s federal policy campaigns.
The Director, Federal Public Policy is the counterpart to the Director, State Public Policy. Each Director is responsible for a portfolio of policy issues drawn from LLS’s larger policy agenda. The two Directors will work in close coordination and at times work across the state/federal division of labor, to ensure that the relevant expertise is applied to the issue(s) at hand. LLS’s priorities include ensuring access to high-quality health insurance coverage among all blood cancer patients; strengthening and accelerating the process of drug development and approval; and sustaining public investment in biomedical research, including in pediatric oncology. The latter two issue areas are primarily responsibilities of the Director, Federal Public Policy.
