The Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator (Assistant CRC) will support research on the Changing Health Through Food Support for Diabetes Study (CHEFS-DM). CHEFS-DM is a four-year randomized controlled trial funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to test the impact of a medically tailored food support and nutrition education intervention among low-income and/or food insecure people living with type 2 diabetes in the San Francisco Bay Area. UCSF is partnering with the community-based nutrition agency Project Open Hand (POH) to provide the intervention under study. POH has been providing food support to individuals with illnesses who are unable to meet their nutrition needs for 35 years and is a leader in Food is Medicine research and policy initiatives. Participants are being recruited primarily from community clinics in San Francisco and Alameda Counties. The Assistant CRC will work under the direct supervision of the Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) and the two Principal Investigators (PIs) to assist in executing and coordinating research protocols under the guidelines of UCSF and regulating agency policies. The Assistant CRC will conduct study activities in both English and Spanish.
The Assistant CRC's duties may include, but will not be limited to, supporting the coordination of tasks for the CHEFS-DM study; assisting in coordinating efforts for study recruitment, enrollment, obtaining informed consent, data collection and retention of study participants; assist in coordination of study activities between UCSF, POH, community clinics and managed care plan partners; attend team meetings; assist in keeping participants on schedule with study visits; collect and enter data into study REDCap databases, maintaining data quality; help design study documents such as flow sheets, data forms and source documents; assist with preparation of reports and tables; assist in helping assure compliance with all relevant regulatory agencies; assist in documenting adverse events and reporting adverse events to the appropriate parties.
