How many people can answer the question, "What do you do for a living?" with the answer, "I help find cures for cancer." At LLS, employees take our mission seriously. Whether you work in one of our chapters, are an accountant at the national office or a specialist in our Information Resource Center, you work each day on making our mission a reality: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Join us and give new meaning to the word, "job."
The individual serving in this position oversees the advancement of LLS's state government affairs agenda across the Northeast Region in an effort to reduce barriers to care for blood cancer patients. This agenda includes, among other things, reductions in the cost burden that patients encounter when accessing cancer care and implementation and enforcement of patient protections established by the Affordable Care Act. To conduct this work, the Regional Director partners closely with other OPP colleagues, primarily members of OPP’s advocacy team.
As a valued member of LLS, you are eligible for a comprehensive benefits package. Our offerings include medical, dental, and vision insurance; life insurance; flexible spending accounts; a 403b retirement plan along with generous paid time off. In addition, we observe federal paid holidays throughout the year, and offer a wellness program and an employee assistance program.
