Ability Housing today announced the appointment of Michael E. Griffin to its board of directors. Griffin, who serves as vice president of public policy and advocacy of Adventist Health System (AHS), headquartered in Altamonte Springs Florida, will commence a three-year term as a member of the board.
“We are thrilled to welcome Michael to the board of directors,” said Shannon Nazworth, CEO of Ability Housing. “Michael’s expertise on the link between health care and housing will be critical as we seek new ways to address homelessness by creating affordable housing solutions for families throughout the state.”
Griffin leads government relations, public policy, corporate citizenship and regulatory administration efforts for the 45-hospital health system. In this role, he oversees the development and execution of Adventist Health System’s public policy agenda as well as the organization’s focus on the social determinants of health to facilitate the improvement of the fiscal, spiritual and economic well-being of the communities served by AHS.
“It has been a privilege to support the work that Ability Housing has done in Central Florida over the past several years, and I am honored to join the board of directors,” said Griffin. “Access to quality, affordable housing is a critical determinant of health, and I look forward to working closely in collaboration with other board members and the community to raise awareness of the correlation between health and affordable housing, and help bridge that gap to foster abundant, healthy lives for families across Florida.”
