Tallahassee, Fla.—The Florida Behavioral Health Association (FBHA) is proud to announce that Jennifer Johnson is joining the team as the new senior director of public policy starting Monday.

She initially began as a legislative analyst and left as the staff director for the Health and Human Services Policy Unit. For the last three years, Johnson has worked at the Department of Health as division director of public health statistics and performance management.


“I am fortunate to have had a meaningful career in the health and human services policy arena,” said Johnson. “I have developed a strong understanding of how policies and laws, and their implementation in communities across Florida, affect vulnerable populations and individuals.”
