Kevin Ressler

President and CEO

“Coatesville borders Lancaster County where I have lived nearly my whole life. The similarities around structural and historic inequities are unsurprising and all too common across our nation. My background in conflict transformation, previous work in nonviolent communication, and most recently the opportunity at United Way of Lancaster County to think about convening spaces while honoring differing voices prepares me to join in the work The Alliance for Health Equity has already begun. I am deeply honored to have been selected to lead Alliance for Health Equity and look forward to learning from the community and working with the community to build together for a future we can all be proud to have contributed to birthing.”

I joined The Alliance for Health Equity to become part of a team whose mission is focused on a commitment to advancing the health, economy, gender, and racial equity of the Greater Coatesville area. Over the course of a 40-year career in healthcare I have witnessed the impact of how equitable allocation of resources can make a difference in people’s individual lives as well as their communities.
