University Settlement appoints Joanna Weiner to its Board of Directors

Joanna Weiner (Senior Counsel, NYC Health + Hospitals) has been elected to University Settlement’s Board of Directors, the nation’s first settlement house announced today.

Joanna has worked as a health care lawyer for more than 20 years, serving as in-house counsel for non-profit hospitals and as outside counsel for a variety of not-for-profit health care entities. In her current role, she leads NYC Health + Hospitals’ health care regulatory practice.

A graduate of Harvard College, she received her J.D. from Boston University School of Law. Joanna lives in Brooklyn with her husband, two teenagers, and their dog; outside of work, she sings in a treble choir and serves on its board.

“We are grateful to welcome Joanna to our Board,” said Melissa E. Aase, CEO of University Settlement. “Her insight into New York City’s healthcare systems will be directly relevant to many of our most important strategic goals, and I look forward to calling on her counsel.”

“I am thrilled to join the board of an organization that makes a tremendous impact in the lives of thousands of New Yorkers every year,” Joanna said. “For generations, University Settlement has listened and responded to the priorities of its neighbors, and I am looking forward to partnering with its leaders as we continue to build community strength in Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan.”
