Mike Keevin

Mike Keevin has been named Vice President of Social Determinants of Health by Aspire Indiana Health, an indication of the increased focus the nonprofit healthcare provider is placing on non-medical factors affecting a person’s overall health and wellbeing.

Aspire’s social determinants of health programs address housing, employment, legal services, as well as other social factors that impact health such as finances, education and access to food. He previously held the title of Director of Strategic Initiatives.

Keevin joined Aspire in 2011 after 20 years in the grocery industry, heading up the social enterprise team. Over the past decade he led the scaling up of non-medical support programs that were eventually consolidated as social determinants of health.

Today, Aspire has positioned social determinants as one of its four core healthcare services along with behavioral health, primary medical care and addiction/recovery treatment.

“I’m grateful to Aspire for the trust they have placed with me, and their strategic foresight to build robust programs to address challenges that have a very real impact on Hoosiers’ health and happiness,” Keevin said. Keevin received his bachelor’s degree in business management from Western Governors University, and is currently working on a master’s degree in accounting from Indiana Wesleyan University. He is credentialed as a Certified Occupancy Specialist (COS), Certified Manager of Housing (CMH), Certified Financial Specialist (CFS) and Tax Credit Specialist (TCS).
