The Foundation welcomed two new members to its board of directors effective January 1: Enola G. Aird, founder and president of Community Healing Network, appointed by The Foundation’s board; and Vlad Coric, M.D., CEO of Biohaven, appointed by the president of the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce

A global leader in combatting anti-Black racism, Aird is “a very powerful voice in how we as a community and as a nation can and must confront racism at its root causes,” said Foundation president and CEO Will Ginsberg.

As a key leader in the industry that is building our community’s future economic base, Coric’s experience “will be invaluable to The Foundation’s work on inclusive growth,” said Ginsberg.

Aird and Coric succeed Flemming L. “Nick” Norcott Jr. and Roxanne Coady, respectively, whose terms ended at the end of 2022.

In addition to the new appointments, the board has elected former vice chair Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith to serve as chair and Fernando Muñiz to serve as vice chair for 2023.
