Biography

Joel Ervice is the Associate Director of Regional Asthma Management and Prevention, which works to reduce the burden of asthma with a focus on health equity. Since 2003, he has helped lead RAMP from its Bay Area focus to a nationally-recognized resource. In partnership with RAMP’s director, Joel manages organizational development, financial sustainability and communications. Joel also manages two strategic areas: 1) Healthy Air for All, which shapes policies to reduce air pollution in inequitably burdened communities; and 2) Health Care Equity, which increases access to prevention-oriented services within health care, and advances workforce development for asthma professionals.

Prior to joining RAMP, Joel worked at the Berkeley Media Studies Group as a media advocacy trainer and with the Insight Center for Community Economic Development on early care and education policy. He also served as a U.S. Peace Corps Youth Development Volunteer in Ecuador. Joel graduated cum laude from Whitman College and was selected to the national Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society.
