Health coach with us

Health Coach - CoachMe

Take on a people-centered role that supports low-income patients with diabetes and high blood pressure to meet their health goals. Join us to help the patients that need coaching the most.

CoachMe is a startup nonprofit filling a critical gap in our healthcare system - helping turn a diagnosis of diabetes or high blood pressure into step-by-step action plans patients can follow. Our mission is to address the health disparities that face low-income Americans.

We work with patients on Medicaid and without insurance. Our health coaches remotely support patients over text and video, to build healthy lifestyle habits that can change and lengthen their lives.

Our team is looking for candidates who are passionate about our mission and want to help us provide health coaching to low-income patients. We are looking for excitement and commitment, as well as some Health Coaching experience.

What you’ll do:

  • Coach patients with diabetes and/or high blood pressure, using our video and text message platforms. Use techniques like motivational interviewing and regular check-ins to build action plans for change.

  • Connect our clients with resources and external supports as needed

  • Provide education to your clients on their chronic disease(s) in an approachable, non-academic manner

  • Provide insight and constructive feedback on the CoachMe platform as it continues to develop and grow

  • Work with other teammates to solve issues and improve our service

Join us if you:

  • Have some health coaching experience - a minimum of 50 hours with clients

  • Health coaching certification preferred - ideally from an ICF-accredited program - or equivalent skills in health coaching and motivational interviewing

  • Are a “people person” with enthusiasm and patience—no one ever said change is easy

  • Can build meaningful relationships with individuals from varying backgrounds
