Jennifer Black

Project Coordinator

Jennifer is a project coordinator at CHRT. She supports CHRT’s ongoing work to build a community-integrated health network which will provide services addressing health-related social needs to Michigan communities. Jennifer provides project management and business planning support.

Prior to joining CHRT, Jennifer spent a decade working for hospitals, academic medical centers, health systems, research institutions, long-term care providers, health care providers, research consortiums, and nonprofit organizations on a wide range of regulatory, strategic, and transactional projects. She has extensive experience working with local, state, and federal agencies, in grants and contracting, and in matters of governance and administration.

Jennifer’s commitment to initiatives targeting health-related social needs began when she worked as a research assistant on a portfolio of federally-funded, community-based participatory research projects focused on increasing healthy food access and consumption, health education, and physical activity in underserved communities in Detroit, Michigan. During and after law school, Jennifer worked through medical-legal partnerships to assist clients with housing, family law, special education, immigration, and public benefits matters.

Jennifer lives in Ann Arbor with her spouse and three young children. She is a member of the Board of Directors of the Children’s Literacy Network, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to design and implement literacy-based programs to provide equitable opportunities for children to develop a love of reading and books.

Jennifer has a juris doctor degree from the University of Michigan Law School and a bachelor’s degree in psychology and French and francophone studies from the University of Michigan.
