Marketing and Program Coordinator

Emily’s Entourage is looking for a full time (40 hours per week) Marketing and Program Coordinator to help plan and manage marketing/communications, special projects and volunteers, and operations for this rapidly growing nonprofit.

The Foundation

Emily’s Entourage is an innovative 501(c)3 that fast tracks research for new treatments and a cure for rare nonsense mutations of Cystic Fibrosis. Founded by Emily Kramer-Golinkoff, her family and friends, Emily’s Entourage is fueled by powerful communities, small and large, in person and virtual, that have rallied together, raising over $3 million since 2011 to drive high-impact research and groundbreaking collaboration.

While the urgency of the foundation is inspired by Emily’s advanced stage disease, the work of Emily’s Entourage gives impetus to advances that can benefit not only patients with Cystic Fibrosis, but approximately 12% of all patients with genetic diseases that are similarly caused by nonsense mutations, amounting to roughly 30 million people worldwide.

Named a White House “Champion of Change” for Precision Medicine, Emily’s Entourage has been featured on CNN.com, Time.com, People.com, AOL.com, CBS’s The Doctors, Yahoo Health and many other national and local media outlets for its disruptive approach to accelerating breakthroughs and Emily’s inspiring story.
