Jeron Ravin, JD, President and CEO of Swope Health, begins a two-year term today on the Board of Directors for the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) representing Region VII.
Serving as the national voice for community-based health centers like Swope Health, the association promotes their mission and accomplishments. It works to secure ongoing support to protect and strengthen community health center services and expand access for people and communities in need.
“It’s a tremendous honor to join the NACHC Board of Directors and advance our shared goals of advocacy and resources for community health centers,” Ravin said. “I look forward to working to promote the mission of health centers across the country to build stronger, healthier communities through high-quality, patient-centered care that is accessible to all.”
Ravin replaces Dennis Kruse of Family Care Health Centers in St. Louis, who served on the NACHC board for 16 years. Ravin joins fellow Region VII representative Denise Cyzman of the Community Care Network of Kansas, whose term expires next year.
As President and CEO since 2019, Ravin leads strategic direction for Swope Health. With a master’s degree in Healthcare Leadership from Brown University’s School of Professional Studies, Ravin also holds a Juris Doctor from the Thurgood Marshall School of Law and a BA in Journalism from Howard University.
